ATI Radeon 4850 (Going Up To 110 °C)

And when dust collects on those fins, there won't be enough air flowing over your GPU. If I even touch the side of my computer case near where the GPU is located, and it is plenty hot. btw, I installed ATIExpert Tool. The most aggravating part is how it shuts off my computer in mid game. his comment is here

Please help. I shouldn't have to do this for normal operation of this product so therefore I think I can RMA it. The ATI Catalyst control center. Originally posted by: novasatori Originally posted by: FerrelGeek So, what are you getting to replace them?Click to expand...

It was ATI Radeon 4850. IMO its very obvious that the card is overheating. I opened card to install Accelero and it was indeed full of dust, lint etc. (after 4 months use). Many major electronics retailers/corporations, such as best buy, circuit city, etc...

This rig gets 50fps on the Crysis demo (probably not max settings; the demo doesn't seem to have settings for that.) The Video Card Stability Test benchmarks at 377fps.

Well, if you're not gonna OC don't bother getting an aftermarket cooler if you overclock the people providing warranty aren't gonna know are they? NotYourHero05-28-2010, 09:57 AMI can only guess at what said, but I guess you wasn't around for the 4870 and it's infamous history for temps so high you could cook eggs on Have you any clue about what brand OR safe operating temp of your card?

When I took the cooler off of my Sapphire 4850, there are dust inside the heatsink, where the fins are. I do know it'll be from Newegg though! With the fan speed running 100% which is loud enough to hear it from several rooms away. I can hear myself think again it's so quiet. #15 Butterbean, Feb 9, 2009 techboie Member Joined: Jan 12, 2009 Messages: 75 Likes Received: 0 Although I live in north

Best buy has to be the worst of them according to what I've heard. http://quodsoftware.com/ati-radeon/ati-radeon-fan-replacement.html What that means is you call up tech support and if they determine you need a new card they'll give you an RMA number and shipping information. I'm going to be cutting the front of the case to fit another 120mm there as it's only built for an 80mm (and those are just too annoying for me). I am putting my new PC into a CoolerMaster HAF 932 full tower case, which has more than plenty of airflow.

The hardware I want with my new PC include the following. Which is good because I am paranoid about the temps of my gfx card. are you sure?! weblink EXT64May 21, 2009, 7:05 AM Yes, true.

The source wasnt one of my usual ones so im not 100% sure its reliable, sounds about right to me though. And a lot of cards were bent and DOA. Mine ran a 4ghz with the stock cooler.Click to expand...

I almost bought a thermaltake duorb for my HD 4850, only to find out shortly before that it wouldn't fit. Hopefully get one with a better cooler too, non reference like mine. #4 dakels, Feb 3, 2009 FerrelGeek Diamond Member Joined: Jan 22, 2009 Messages: 3,848 Likes Received: 76 Originally Skill DDR3 @ 1600 9-9-9-24 Video Card(s): Sapphire 5870 1GB Hard Disk(s): 90GB OCZ Agility 2 SSD, 240GB Intel 530 SSD, 640GB WD HDD LCD/CRT Model: 24" Acer 19x12 LCD / Aug 5, 2010 #5 darkty TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 49 No Sir, I am actually using a BlackWidow Cable Management power supply.

I have the fan speed modded to 100% and a slight voltmod and I'm only hitting 76C on the stock cooler. The really unfortunate thing you may both run into is the manufacturer stating that such temps are within the "acceptable range" for that particular GPU.

It's been overheating ever since I bought my PC. The temperature stays constantly at 80 degrees Celsius.
