Default Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released

from all of the posts ive read about this, it appears to me that it is a driver bug in which the driver spins down the fan too much during normal operation, thus higher core temperatures. As some windows users noticed, a work-around was to OC the core by 1mhz so the driver would boost the fan speed or something... I'm not sure this is the case, but it's what I gather from a majority of the posts. hehe

... Rumor has it (as posted in the forceware forum) that all new driver builds after some recent date will not have this bug. I could have been on mushrooms when I read that though
