I'd say work on bringing those temps down; use a can of air to blow out heat sinks, fans, and air vents.
It got to 100 C after half an hour. Is it still a problem?
Can you please explain can of air?
And I would like to remind that this is a notebook.

I am not sure if I got your point. Are you referring to 100 C issue. In this version, 100 C has been set as an up limit and plays a sound when reached. Is this what you mean, or there is another thing? Thanks.

No I was just posting the newest version of Furmark as it adds support for newer video cards. (eg gtx 500 series)

Can of compressed air:



Because you have a laptop, just blow out all the air vents.

So this test is only for artifacts and temp, right?
Hwo di I recognize an artifact? Because I think (not completely sure) that I saw some gliches or errors or something like that on the lower right corner of the screen, but they were there only for a fragment of a second, so I couldn't take a good look at them. Does this mean that my test failed?

Does it matter if post-FX is on or off by the way?

An artifact is a glitch in the display; if you're unsure about it, snap a picture with a camera and upload it here.

I'm not familiar with the Post-FX option; I'll have to research that. It certainly won't hurt though.

The glitches was there, that's for sure... But only for a very short time. I don't think that I could make a video by the way, because my computer crashed during the tests. However it didn't crashed with my old card...
