That's weird. Are you sure its caused by WinAMP?

I'm curious as well. A little far fetched to blame a rise in temp by a IDLE media player like winamp. Look elsewhere.

i'm positive it is win amp. it is only when the visual studio is on and at idle. my cpu usage jumps to 55% when it idles and drops back down to 15% when in use...
