    G55 Temps (new) tested old/new drivers

    What are your guys temps after using the Furmark 1080p Burn-In Benchmark?

    I posted a couple weeks ago that my G55 was reading temperatures of up to 90 C during a test of furmark.

    Since then, I've got it replaced. Now it's getting no higher than mid 70's C!

    Here are the furmark results:

    As you can see with the old drivers, the max temp was around 74 C (using the 15 minute 1080p burn-in test)
    while with the new ones it using the same test it ended up being 71 C. The difference was probably because of outside factors, but still I'm glad I got my G55 replaced, as my old one was wayyy too hot!

    Also, while playing League of Legends on the stock drivers, I noticed GPU throttling . It's on full power mode, and the NVDIA control settings were on full power. Anyone know how to fix this? Note: this was on old drivers, I have yet to test it on the new ones. I'll get around to that later.

    I used the beta version. I'd say 82 C is alright. I'd be worried if it passes the 90C mark, though.

    Hmmm now I'm debating if I should bring mine back, I ordered it a week ago and when I ran furmark I got max 85 degrees Celsius. I don't really see this temperature as a problem but if it can run that much cooler than why wouldn't I get it replaced.

    Honestly, I think 85c is just fine. I wouldn't gamble returning it, since you might get one that is even hotter.
