Hello all. I am an i7, 256 SP3 owner now for about 2 weeks. I have had some issues, but feel like they have been resolved through some fixes on my end, as well as my own overall understanding of how the system works. So, I may be completely crazy--or perhaps overly hopeful for some sort of enhancements to the SP3 thermal maintenance--but I swear that my SP3 is running much cooler when doing simple web browsing since yesterdays firmware update. I know that this was not on the list of enhancements, but am seeing in other thread that people have noticed some marked decreases in throttling so wondered if this could have been something they looked at. Before the update, I feel that if I had 5 or 6 webpages up and checking emails, if I felt the back of the device in the upper right corner it would at least feel warm. Since the update, in the same scenarios I am feeling the same area and it is actually COOL to the touch. !!!!!! I did fire up some programs that hog the cpu and was able to get her to her warmest place with the fans kicking to high gear, but I feel that in normal usage my SP3 is running completely cool to the touch, which it wasn't before. It wasn't at all uncomfortable, just could feel warmth. Now, I'm not. (Although, she still got VERY warm when doing the cpu intensive tasks--not too hot too handle, but very warm as it had before the update.) Again, it could be a combo of past tweaks and my imagination. Has anyone else experienced this?
