    GPU temp was between 65 ~ 75, while CPU is 86C ~ 93C (I'm using it with cooler)
    I oc'd my GPU at 750/1500/1080. Gives a noticeable amount of difference. Just thought I'd share my opinion.

    I am downloading it on my m14x now. I played it on my desktop and the game is gorgeous. I will report back probably tomorrow with some screenshots and video.

    So how about your fps and temp? Because I might want to try that as well.

    Video Driver: 267.21
    Turbo Boost: Off
    GPU Clock: Stock NOOC
    Screen Res: Fullscreen 1600X900
    Video Options: Fullscreen/Ultra (no changes)
    FPS: AVG 25.4
    CPU: 85C Highest recorded

    Comments: The game felt pretty smooth for 25.4fps. Will try upgrading the video and doing some slight GPU overclocking, but for stock with turbo turned off I was very impressed.

    Well what do you expect, Turbo Boost is a form of auto-OC for Intel CPU, if you turn that one off, then no more OC. The clock would stay at it original clock. Thus save for the heat, and sacrifice for the performance and the extra Ghz boost.

    I was expecting it to be much worse then what it was, it ran very good for stock video drivers and no overclocking (cpu/gpu) running at full resolution with the ultra settings on. Even 25fps was very playable, a couple of tweaks and I can see it doing 40fps no problem.

    Well about that "Ultra" Setting, I just found out that is not the Real Ultra (As I guess) it is actually Low Setting.

    Because I also try to change between Low - Med - High - Ultra and nothing different. Read this post for more info:

    Some of the video settings actually do work. Turning off ambient occlusion and lowering anistropy gained me 15 fps to an average of 40 on medium. Not too shabby.
