Radeon 4870

Anyone have this video card?


I have a single slot version, which I regret buying now because it shoots hot air back into my case, so I keep my case open and my CPU cores aren't hot and are running under normal temps, but under load my GPU core tempature can hit around 95 c. with 100% fan speed.

My power supply is good too.


I know this is hot.. However all my other temperatures on my computer aren't hot and my case is open...

This only happens when I'm gaming in certain games like World at War and Call of Duty 4 with all graphics maxed out, the idle temp stays between 59c-64c no matter what speed the fan goes, even if the room is cold it will always hit that temperature.


Can this fry my video card? I know it shortens the life of my card, I'm fine with that.. I just don't want my card getting fried since it's pretty new.


What temperature can the 4870 handle?
