Linux My Budget Media Server...
#22
After much reading on the subject of CPU/GPU temperature on these machines I have discovered that running the proprietary Linux drivers has a big effect on chip temperature. I am a bit of an Opensource 'Fanboi' and will only run proprietary software if there is a real need to do so. I had been running the Opensource 'Neuveau' drivers as I saw no point running the extra Intel and Nvidia drivers, as I seldom use the display. I usually just SSH or VNC into it if I need to. However after a bit of experimentation, I have discovered that using the proprietary Intel Minicode and Nvidia ION drivers it has better fan control and the CPU/GPU/MB temps are about 10c lower.

My ickle tube of Thermal Paste came today, so I will have a go at doing that tomorrow.
