Default Best Leshcat driver to use ATM? - 05-10-2013, 12:25 | posts: 95

Specs: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...pecs.png/?sa=0
Currently using 13.2 Beta I think, and its pretty great, haven't had any issues I can think of.
Was just wondering if it was worth upgrading to the newer ones, specifically, if there was any one of them which was more stable/better.
I don't care too much performance wise, it just shouldn't raise temperatures too high. My current temps are like 65-82 at the max(Guessing its also due to daily cleaning which I now do :p), 75 and above mostly in games like Far Cry 3.

If it helps, the games I will be playing:
Far Cry 3/Blood Dragon
Dishonored
Kingdoms of Amalur
Dark Souls
Strike Suit Zero/Infinity
XCOM Enemy Unknown
Hitman Absolution
Zeno Clash 2
Sleeping Dogs
Alan Wake/American Nightmare
Bioshock Infinite
Tomb Raider
The Last Remnant
Batman Arkham City
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon
Fallout New Vegas
Elder Scrolls Oblivion
Mars War Logs
Mark of the Ninja
Doctor Who the Eternity Clock
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes
Phantasy Star Online 2
TERA Online
Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed
Torchlight 2
Warframe
Portal 2
Borderlands 2
Splinter Cell Conviction

Hope someone who uses Leshcat drivers can help out :3~

Normally drivers shouldn't affect the temperature too much.
One thing you have to be careful about is the newer Intel driver (3062, starting from UnifL 13.4), which often causes BSODs when KB2670838 is installed. If you don't have this update installed, you can use 13.4 WHQL without any problem.
Since you're going to play some newer games like Far Cry 3 and BioShock Infinite, I think it would make sense to use a newer driver.

Any way to find out whether KB2670838 is installed or not?
I don't have Windows Update enabled at all actually, haven't since I first got this laptop at the end of 2011 :V

If Windows Update is turned off and you didn't install it manually, then it is safe to assume you don't have it installed. There is a way to see which updates are installed, though: go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> View installed updates and look for KB2670838. It's a pretty recent update actually, and it is now blocked by Microsoft for laptops with AMD switchable graphics, so most likely you don't have it anyway.
