    I have noticed that using 9600m GT causes my mac to run about 20-30 degrees warmer compared to using the 9400m. For instance, when using the 9400m i'd normally get about 45-60 degrees when running firefox and itunes, but when i switch to the 9600m GT and performing the same tasks i get up to about 85 if not 90! I just thought this was a tad perculiar. Anyone with similar experiences / solutions to cooling this thing down (besides using smc which i already have installed).

    9600M GT will always run warmer than the 9400M. For me the 9400M will run around 45 C when doing regular tasks but with the 9600M GT it will run 10 C hotter doing the same tasks.
