ahh figured why my PC was hotter
I had been using a net Live TV app while I was working (everytime I have checked Temps since recently loading Win 7 for 1st install)...
While it uses almost no CPU time 2 - 3%
my 5850 GPU Load NO TV = 1 - 8 - 11% GPU load (is rare to hit 11%)
my 5850 GPU Load WITH TV = 1 - 8 - 11% GPU load
NO TV Core 157MHz Mem 300MHz
WITH TV Core 400MHz Mem 900MHz
WITH TV pulls an extra 40 - 50 watts of power from the mains power monitor I use also.
with no TV browser app running my 5850 is also now idling at 51c today
Am in England, Plymouth + is about 23c here today
