    Opening the case could mean there's actually less airflow around the card.
    It may be that having the case closed actually makes the video card cooler
    than when the case is open. Try opening the computer's case and having a
    room fan blow onto the video card. Maybe a heatsink has been disloged

    #### okay i did a bit more experiments with a desk fan, the temperature
    (with case closed) dropped from 40'C to 28'C, and i tried the browsing
    trick, and sure enough 'that' happened again :(

    will.
