    Hello,

    I received a new 2.13 4GB 256 Air yesterday and it is acting very strange under W7 while gaming.

    The game starts out fine with moderate settings, but a few minutes into it, the game starts to stutter/throttle.

    I have never had this issue under W7 with my old 2010 and am wondering if there is something I am missing.

    I have Lubos Fan Control, tried throttle stop, and am using stock clocks. I have tried both stock drivers and the latest from nvidia.

    The laptop stays cool compared to my 2011 running the same game. (MW3 & MW2)

    Thoughts?

    Heres the report.

    Look at the GPU! This is after 5 minutes of MW3 @ Native Res / Native Image Settings. Everything else set off.

    MW2 does the same thing. Although, I dont remember seeing my GPU hit 95c after five minutes before either.

    Anyone else have this game or MW2 and want to compare 5 minutes?

    Opened her up, removed the thermal pasted and installed some Antec Formula 6.

    GPU temps dropped from 90s to mid 70s.

    Games great now.
