Now, this is odd.

Code:

Everything seems to be working smoothly and solid after 12h. VPDAU works. Powermizer works. The only issue is the vacuum cleaner noise, temperature stays below 40C *under load*, room temperature when idle.

If it can be of any help, this is opensuse 11.2 x86_64 with low-latency (desktop) kernel. I used the NVIDIA installer (not the repository).
