    I install windows 8.1 and i notice that this windows make lot of heat with high fan activity

    I change into windows 7 and its all work perfect without extra heating.

    I have a dell studio 1458 laptop and i have A04 bios
    So i really dont know if this cause by the windows 8.1 or the old version of the bios (today the A07 bios is the best, but i dont know how to upgrade the bios safely)

    What say you?

    Win7 doesn't use very many resources.
    Win8 uses a lot.
    More processing = more heat.
    Newer systems control the heat better.

    In gaming it's roughly the same, but in non-3d applications, it's noticeably higher resource usage in win8.x

    simply d/l the file from Dell's site and press the button where it says update or upgrade or whatever is is called. Shut down all programs, Make a copy of important stuff and say a prayer :D

    I, for some reason, have a different experience with Win 8. It tends to run noticeably cooler on my thinkpad. My left wrist rests on the left side of the laptop, where the exhaust is. Windows 7 produces more heat when I do similar tasks, (browsing, idling).

    Same here, since I haven't noticed any temperature difference between 7 and 8... ;)
    And I have my eye on the CPU cores temps all the time.

    The temperature of I/O controller hub is 81 in Update 1 (it was 67-72 in win 8.1).
    Maybe clean install of Update 1 reduce the heat ?

    It's common with Win 8.1.
