Graphics card hotter in Vista than XP
I recently got a new graphics card (Nvidia 8800gts) and noticed in Vista its
about 5-6c hotter than XP. I understand its working in 3d mode all the time
in Vista due to Aero, but even when I switch to basic theme the temps dont
change. In Vista the idle temps are around 63-64c while in XP its around
58-59. Anything I can do in Vista, disable features, services or whatever to
bring the temps down?

Re: Graphics card hotter in Vista than XP
If the temps are within spec, and you are not seeing any graphic artifacts
or experiencing system hangs- why worry?

If a problem you can buy an outboard fan easy enough. And make sure
ventilation is always
in good condition.... no fuzz in slots and so on.
