Default GPU temperature

Hi,

I have GeForce 8600M GS on laptop. PowerMizer is on and GPU temperature on idle state is about 63C (I don't use compiz). When I run 3D application temperature grows to 75-80C. It's pretty high. Installed drivers - 173.14.12 and system is 32bit.

Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "GeForce 8600M GS"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    VideoRam    262144
    Option	"nologo"
    Option      "DPMS" "TRUE"
    Option 	"RenderAccel" "true"
    Option	"UseEvents" "false"
    Option	"TripleBuffer" "True"
    Option	"UseEdidDpi"   "FALSE"
    Option	"DPI"   "96 x 96"

    Option	"RegistryDwords"	"PowerMizerLevel=0x0"
    Option	"PixmapCacheSize" "800000" 
    Option	"OnDemandVBlankInterrupts" "True" 

    Option      "BackingStore" "true"
    Option      "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
    Option	"DisableGLXRootClipping" "true"
EndSection
Are there any tips to change it via software method?

Your temps are fine.
Do you notice any crashes or artifacts? or why are you worried?
