Has anybody had their temperature increase with 84.25 drivers and Coolbits installed on them?

My video card is a 6800GT.

In the past there was a driver update that had faulty temperature readings on nVidia cards so wondering if this is happening again. Thanks.

Idle temperature seems to be the same, but after few hours of gaming temperature is 30c higher,(70-75c to 100-105c) what it used to be with previous drivers.

Bah!

I'm getting the same thing. Games are going from low 70s to low 90s with this set. I guess i'll re-install the older ones, the only reason i got these was for Oblivion and they don't make a **** of difference anyway.

Yeah, my idle temps have risen about 4C with these.
Not sure about ingame temps though.
