91.31: Temperature reading bug in classic control panel?

    Hello.

    I just got my new XFX GeForce 6800 AGP (128 MB) video card and installed 91.31 drivers. I hated
    the new control panel, so I went back to the classic one. I noticed in "Temperature Settings",
    the numbers seem to be incorrect:

    Core slowdown threshold: 127 degrees (C)
    GPU core temperature: 153 degrees (C) [this never sems to change and its temperature level is
    red, yellow, and green with 153 degrees]
    Ambient temperature: 42 C

    In the new control panel's monitor temperature levels:
    GPU Core: 50 degrees(C)
    Ambient temperature: 41 degrees(C)
    Slowdown threshold: 127 degrees(C)

    Is anyone else noticing this? Thank you in advance. :)

    How weird. Old 84.21 driver has the same problem. See

    I wonder if my RMA'ed card is defective. :(
