Update: I noticed that this problem only occurs during the afternoon when its hot. I just checked and saw that temperatures shot to around as high as 70 even while its not really doing anything. I decided to just increase fan speed during the afternoons to keep temperatures stable at around 65. During night I get my regular temp. levels of around 50. But yeah never encountered this before I updated my driver. Either that or I just haven't been paying attention which makes pinning down the real issue difficult.
