View Full Version : XP vs Vista temps(CPU & GPU)!
Has anybody else noticed that the temps(CPU & GPU)run hotter under vista?
My 8800GTS runs at 48c under XP and my CPU runs 35c-36c under XP,(im using dual boot)as soon as i boot into Vista my temps rise to 50c-52c on my graphics card and around 39c on my CPU! ..... how come? ... does anybody else have this happen?

Assuming you have Aero turned on, I don't think it should be too surprising. The power to drive all the eye candy has to come from somewhere, which means a CPU and GPU that are working more than in the 2D and less busy environment of XP, thus higher temps.
for the gpu it doesn't lower the clocks down to 2d speeds either does it?

for the first hour or so cpu temperature is high in vista,but then it gets lower. ( with aero and dreamscene) my idle temperature was 48-46 two hours ago, now it's 40-42.

my 8800gtx runs quite a bit hotter in vista too, thats because of the 3d desktop, and being in 3d mode all the time.

hmm....I need to reinstall XP then so I can get better clock on my CPU because the heat is what's holding me back.
