I'm having some overheating issues with my gtx260m in my G60vx. I recently upgraded my cpu from a p7450 to a T9600. Before the upgrade my gpu would never exceed 82c while playing battlefield 3. Now after the upgrade the gpu reaches 97c! It's weird cause the new cpu runs about 15c cooler than the stock cpu. I've done a repaste and it had no help. I ordered new thermal pads to replace the old, dirty ones, but I won't be getting them for over two weeks. Not sure that's even going to help me out. Anyways, I have come to the conclusion that undervolting the gpu is a must. I want to know what I need to do to achieve this. I also want to add that i've done the typical cooling mods for the g60vx(cut blue fan wire, cut out the hole for the fan). I also always use a notebook cooler. Thanks in advance for your help.
