ATI Radeon 4850 (Going Up To 110 °C)

Do they even make aftermarket air coolers for the Radeon HD 58xx yet? People have been telling me to "RMA" my card because it could be faulty.

If so temporarily take out your graphic card, and switch to using on-board vga, then see how your system behaves.

I opened card to install Accelero and it was indeed full of dust, lint etc. (after 4 months use). I have a micro-ATX case and the only fan is a tiny fan on the back of the case and a perforated grill on the side of the case. If you want to podjump back, click here.

Maximum Temperature of Radeon 4850? This is in an Ultra Wizard case that I got during the Free After Rebate bitzes that they used to do on cases and PSU's. Can That be the cause?

If you don't have any issues running on integrated graphics, then you'll have to deal with overheating anyway. whs, Nov 16, 2009 Nov 17, 2009 #4 The_Absolute whs said: ↑ Also what are you using to record these temperatures? Every single GPU I have owned in the past 8 years has ran very hot (and loud) using it's stock cooler. Something with the card is faulty. (You must log in or sign up to reply here.)

Meh either way. Now its about 100C at 80% fan speed and 90C at 100% fan speed. Good news is I have never heard of a 4850 burning up, they seem to like the heat. is it my tower's fans that does not help to keep low temp at my gpu?please could some1 enlighten me?

Many major electronics retailers/corporations, such as best buy, circuit city, etc... More Help are you sure?! I do know it'll be from Newegg though! Mine idles a cool and collective 160mhz gpu and 250mhz vram when idling non 3d apps.

Right now I am running a burn in with the Video Card Stability Test from Freestone, on top of Mediaplayer Classic which is displaying television straight from my Hauppauge Win-TV 1800 That looks like a solid build, but like kgb said, "stock cooling"? I do not have a fan on the cooler or I'm sure the numbers would be even better...but what's the point.

Mactronix SvanteHMar 24, 2009, 10:34 PM I got a HD 4850 card and I run @ 80 C idle with the fanspeed set at 55%, I'm worred that my soundcard is

Join thousands of tech enthusiasts and participate. Most are well aware of such issues and should be able to help you make any necessary changes to your specific card to reduce the temperatures, or troubleshoot things further. More resources See also solved CPU and GPU around 80c solved CPU 1 and 2 are running at 80 degrees (c). Fan speed should automatically adjust according to temperatures on that thing.

Hence, if the system stays 'stable' with onboard vga, it would mean that graphic card is bad (provided its fan is working alright) or your PSU is not upto the mark It drops and goes up and fluctuates a lot. The actual acronym means "Return Material Authorization." I'd just call them up instead of playing around with it and get an answer from the source. Cost - You have to actually buy the item, whereas the use of free software that can override and control the speed of the stock cooling fan may bring the temps

I wonder if I can buy one, they aren't terribly expensive unless you're buying a water cooling block, usually <$100, and pay to have that PC shop slap it onto my TechSpot Account Sign up for free, it takes 30 seconds.

So, I still haven't found a reliable way to stress the video card and the CPU together to 100% for a consistent test. Ask me if you want to see a picture. I know the card runs hot, but here 6 months later I find the idle temp on my card going higher and higher. Anyway, my question is this.
