View Full Version : Do different drivers influence different temperatures?

With the 61.77 drivers, playing Doom 3 for 2 hours would load my card to around 58 degrees, but playing Call Of Duty for half an hour with the 61.36 drivers gives me a load of 61!

Could their be other things to factor this?

The way you're measuring temperatures does not provide an accurate picture. When you quit out of a game, the temp can drop by a minimum of 5 degrees within the first two seconds. The best way to determine your load temps is to download this demo (http://www.daionet.gr.jp/~masa/archives/rthdribl_1_2.zip). Open up the Forceware control panel with the temperature display up and then run the demo in a window where you can see both.

I dont think its the drivers, try using the same game to test temps....
