HOT Roddy

Richard,

 

Here’s a little something to pass along to the laptop
engineering gnomes.

 

I flashed the latest Dell-recommended revision, A08, to the
BIOS of my XPS M1530, Hot Roddy, yesterday. Now the graphics unit, a Nvidia
8600M, is idling at about 150 F., up to 20 F. above the other components. I somehow
suspect that’s not what the guys had in mind! J I’m seeing GPU spikes up to 175 F. CPU peaks at 155,
which is unremarkable in Roddy since she’s a hot-blooded little critter.

 

Also, why was the hard-drive temperature sensor disabled n
A08?
