Comment: My NVIDIA Observation (Score 1) 155

I do know that in my computer setup that the 2 EVGA 275 FTW cards get cooled down unevenly at idle. I am running the NVIDIA 196.75 driver under Vista 64 Ultimate with SLI ana PhysX turned on. The first card runs at 163 degrees Fahrenheit and the other card at 123 degrees Fahrenheit with both fans set at 100% speed via the NVDIA control panel at idle.

I have caused my computer to lockup playing Mass Effect with the fans in automatic mode and running with the NVIDIA Real 3D feature. The temperature was 192 degrees Fahrenheit on the hotter card before the lock up with Mass Effect. However, World of Warcraft doesn't cause as much heat as other games. I normally see both cards range around 163 degrees Fahrenheit with no problems at all.

So what this means is that I should stop buying my games online and have them sent via the USPS instead of Steam/EA Download Manager/Microsoft Live? (Maybe it will save the USPS.) Maybe I shouldn't install MS Windows/Linux/other OS due to the amount of bandwidth the latest patches will incurred? Maybe I should forget about MMOs? This is a signal from Time Warner that we should all go back to 80's and use the Atari console again. To the time when content came in a cartridge. (Which Warner Bros. did own Atari at the time.) All things must be shipped in a box and come with manuals big enough to be used as a door stop. To the time before Al Gore invented the Internet. BTW I should stop reading /. to save on bandwidth.

On the other hand I can joke here. Time Warner isn't my ISP and isn't going to get my business anytime soon anyways. Luckily a consumer still has good choices today.
