Re: VirtualBox overheating
Well, since I had to rebuild my machine from my F14, the setting are the same as they were under that & it ran just fine. It even ran fine when I first preugraded to F16. (even WITH those games, or I wouldn't have them) The only things changed NOW are the kernel & the vbox versions, plus the extension for the VM, that I can think of. So, that is why I THINK it would be in something there. But that is MY hypothesis, & I know I can be wrong, thus the postings. The more brains working on it, the better!
BTW: the video was direct & when I shut down the games the temp does decrease even with vbox still going - in MY case, it IS a direct usage of the CPU that raises the temps.
Thanks for the link, every bit of info, helps.
