Heat and A03 BIOS
Hello all. I have been messing with this BIOS overclocking stuff, and I actually was able to run 3DMark05 Pro through running 525/1300, and ended up with a score of 6055, which seems a bit low for so much overclock BTW. But the point is, it obviously runs too hot to game for very long, as playing NFS Underground 2 showed when my comp did a hard reboot in about 10 minutes.
I tried throttling it down, and now that I have it set at 500/1200, it will work fine, up to a point. When playing NFS:UG2, after a pretty short time, I will ALT-TAB into the already open "Temperature Settings" in the NVidia control panel, and it shows usually between 84-92 degrees!!! Also, I noticed that the game would slow down quite a bit too, but I don't get the "too hot" popup or whatever, and I can't change the "Core Slowdown Threshold".
I also noticed a post earlier about the new A03 BIOS reporting higher temps and not turning on the fan until later, could this be it? I really don't want to have to go down to stock again >
( Any ideas?
