More aboutaudio makes hotter
Well, it's gotta use the CPU and GPU to process that stuff, so it makes sense that it would be hotter. How much hotter are we talking, though?
normal temps with it disabled cpu -34c hdd-37c gpu-62c @idle
now if the audio in the ati card is enabled the temps for cpu-41c hdd-45c gpu-64c @idle
