At least for the Radeons, that heats up even more the card. Just edit the included Xtreme-Burning batch file and remove the MSAA command switch.
What's the point of actually making the heat less on purpose? Might as well run it at 320x240 and say it's fine since it doesn't overheat...

Isn't that the point? Check if your card overheats?

"Lets see here, if I run Crysis at V.High, my card reaches 95C and artifacts. I'll just run it at medium, 800x600. There, only 80C now, so my card works perfect!"
