keep in mind that with the latest Catalyst 8.8 the system keeps Furmark at bay, lowering temps

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet. I've personally tested the above claim and found the temperature and performance to be the same with or without renaming furmark.exe. Besides myself, a few others have also tested their own setup and came to the conclusion the above claim is false. They were likely made by Nvidia fanboys.

Testing on a Powercolor 4850 with CAT 8.8 under Windows 32bit Vista Ultimate:

Original naming:


Renamed to f.exe:

renaming furmark doubled my fps, wondered why my fps had more than halved since updating to the 8.7's

softshadows fps are still half of what they were regardless of renaming the .exe
