    Hey guys, i have just encountered some weird issue with my system.

    So im on the internet and everything is fine right, then all of a sudden Windows Aero goes out and during that time i found that my GPU usage was fluctuating for some reason for no reason, here's a pick:

    Keep in mind this is at idle:

    The temps reached to around 70c.:eek:

    I waited a little bit and Aero came back, and GPU went back down to normal:wtf::

    What do you guys thing could be the cause?, i looked in task manager to make sure nothing GPU heavy was running and nothing was there.

    Think it could be an issue with the new drivers?

    I think it is normal. I got 66-68 in idle too and about 85-90 in full load.

    EDIT :
    Sorry I just notice the fan work at 70. I think yess, it has trouble. Im in 66-68C, but my fan only 27% not 70. Try to call the shop where you buy it, and tell them it so hot because it has 65C with 70%fan in idle. Hopefully they replace 1 on 1, or just do service for you.

    I manually raised the fan speed to 70% because it was getting so hot for no reason. 98% GPU usage at idle with temps at 70c definitely isn't normal to me, so i bumped the fan up just so it doesn't kill itself. lol

    It automatically updates itself around this time?
