from the time ive installed the 66.81 drivers and directX 9.0c, my system runs hotter than previously.
Well the intel active monitor displays temps as :
zone 1 (CPU): 54*C idle, 68*C Load | zone2 (mobo): 38*C idle, 44*C load | zone3 (AGP) : 41*C idle, 49*C Load.

Previously with 61.77 drivers and directX 9.0b the temps used to be
Zone1 (cpu): 48*C idle, 57*C load | zone2 (mobo) : 36*C idle, 41*C load |
zone3 (agp) : 40*C idle, 48*C load.

ive noticed the change in temperature since the time i installed 66.81 and DX 9.0c
I have overclocked nothing.
i donno wheather prob is in them, or my system so ive posted.
My system:
pentium4 prescott 2.8e HT with intel865gbv motherboard, innovision tornado geforce fx 5200Ultra 128mb

any replies will be helpfull

thats interesting? did u change your drivers back and get cooler results?

edit: Prescotts are hot, i sold my 3.0E for a 2.8c...big temp difference and the performance is ver much little difference

No temp change here. I think it's something else bro.

Yeah, not sure about my cpu, but my gpu runs cooler and it's overclocked.

I have the intel D875 board with a PNY GT, and a 3.4E. My temps did not change going from 61.77 to 66.81.

Yes the prescott runs hot but very stable. With my Zalaman I get 44C idle and 63C load.

alrite then
i had installed 66.81 and directX9.0c at the same time.
so it may be directX 9.0c responisble or weather change
