My HD4850 idles at 87C and under load goes up to 103C. It shuts down my computer every time I try to play a game.

I have ran my top GTX570 to 101 and it sat there for a few min until I figured out what was going on and turned the fan profile back to auto in afterburner.

Wow thats hot, running more than 1 monitor? set up a fan profile and it should cool off better. I have a 550ti in another rig and it idles at 30c and runs 55-60c folding with aprox 23c ambient and i have great airflow in the case too. good luck!

If you are running multi-monitor setup I'm guessing you have them both plugged into the top GPU. Nvidia drivers force 50% usage from a setup like that. I have a 7800gt in my rig to run my 2nd monitor for that reason.
