This related to my earlier posts about my C90S Nvidia 8600M GT, I'm not sure why this is the case but the GPU runs almost 10 degrees cooler in Windows 7 than in Windows XP, I can't use XP without the card overheating and crapping out on me and having to be reflowed, any idea why it runs cooler in Win 7? Could it be the drivers? Could it be there is more support for the CPU and runs the fans faster or more frequent, I need to figure this out and would appreciate any help.

Thanks

Problem Solved I figured out what was causing it, apparently I had MSI Afterburner running and the card was being over clocked so it was over heating, so simple how did I miss that?
