# 1 Login screen uses 79% GPU?

How come the login screen uses so much GPU just sitting there? I think it could do with some optimization.

Here's my temps etc at the login screen.

yikes. I use EVGA precision as well on a GTX 285 and I don't get near that. My GPU useage and temps don't increase till the games launching. Launcher is minimal. But even with the game going I set my fan at 55-60% and that puts me at 70 degrees and about 70% GPU useage.

Really looks like your tower needs better airflow or there's something wrong with your cooling fan on the card.

I'm running a 4870HD on 8.12 drivers, although these ATI cards are well known for running hot this looks a liitle extreme to me.
