    NHC always reports a SMART error for my HDD.

    How do I find out what the problem is so I can fix it!

    Next do I shorten the life of my CPU if Dynamic switching to max performance? I mean that should be a no brainier duh but still want some backup on it.

    I recommend to use a program like HDDlife to get a better idea of your HDD's total health.

    Hi,

    I followed the guide (thanks!), dl'd rivaTuner and it says I have a core temp of 64degs. I have a vostro 1400 with 8400gs. What I don't understand is the offseting part. Are you saying that the temperature could be completely different to the quoted value and that it's only useful as a relative value? How are we meant to know if it's dangerously overheating then?

    Edit: oddly, I got rid of my metallic fan system which I put under the notebook and its gone down to 59deg!

    64C degrees sounds right.... you do not need to offset.

    On my other laptop, an HP Nx9420, it says that the temp is around 70 C on pretty much idle(except on battery) and HDD temps is 101 C .LOL.
    Ok 2 questions :1) should I worry or should I offset?
    2)I don't think hp did the heatsink that good on this x1600,the thing gets sometimes really really hot. CouldI apply Arctic Silver5 or some other paste on it to reduce temps?

    yes you can open it up and clean out any and all fans and vents (with flashlight, Q-tips, and compressed air)...
    ...then re-apply thermal compound and re-secure the heatsink.

    HDD temp should never go past 65C degrees.

    Hi Gophn, thanks for this detailed guide =)

    My GPU temp is showing like "GPU : 78C" when I am gaming. Is it possible to shorten it to 78C like the examples shown by you? And could I change the color of the font? I am running Rivatuner 2.06.

    Thanks!

    yeah you can change the color if you want:
    - right-click on the RivaTuner Statistics Server icon in the tray
    -- choose Setup
    - Then you can change the font color of the OSD there.

    Alright, I'm working on an NP2090, Vista 64-bit, 8600m GT, latest drivers, the whole shebang. Rivatuner installs fine, but when I go to open it, it first says that it cannot load the Rivatuner64.sys driver, and tells me to make sure it's in the folder with Rivatuner, and it's there, and then it tells me that I have to turn driver signing enforcement off, and I can't seem to find it. Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Loving every second of my NP2090!

    It's fun!:
