Just one more question about these numbers: would the same numbers
appear under Windows (everything else being "equal")?


PS: I'm trying to argue with the company (Zotac) that my board has thermal
problems, but they suck (i.e. they dismiss GNU/Linux users), so I need
to be sure that the numbers they give me (which they get under Windows
from I don't know which tool) are comparable to the ones I see.
