    Does anyone know if the program SMC fan control will work when booted into XP via Bootcamp? I am running the game Crysis and I think my Video card may be running hot as after about three hours the game slows to around 15FPS.
    Thanks

    SMC Fan Control is Mac Software, thus it only works when you are running the MacOS. You have to get a windows program for XP.

    Hmm strange, how could it slow down from the heat? I don't think it'll automatically underclock the video card and reduce performance.

    Not sure about the issue but I doubt fan control will help.

    What you can do is use smcfancontrol in OS X. When you reboot into Windows via boot camp, the fan setting will stay.

    I found the problem - it was the 1.1 update to Crysis. I uninstalled it and the game runs fine.
