It is time for me to do something about the 64 idle and 85 load temps on the card. I really want to get the DuOrb. Thermalright is out of the question because of $. Maybe I should get the Accelero S1 Rev. 2? How about waiting for a driver/bios update to fix fan speeds? So many choices!!

Needs to have heatsinks for memory, etc.

I decided to force my fan to 100% and give it a couple weeks to see if their is a better selection of coolers or if one of the utilities has a update.

How loud is the fan at 100%? Jet engine loud?

i would do the wire choice but the problem is i dont want to pull out the blue wire so how would i go so in maxing the fan speed without permanently destroying the pwm wire. maybe i should put it on another 3 pin thing like the mobo somewhere???

You shouldn't need to wait for a BIOS update, or volt mod the card (although you still might want to, for obvious reasons ). For the simple sake of the fan, though, just use Rivatuner and create fan speed profiles, I have one at 25% (the minimum) 60%, 80% (where I usually game) and 100% (for annoying my parents because it's so loud). Trust me, you can watch the temps drop like a rock as soon as you activate a profile.

If your careful it's reversible.Unplug the fan from the card and very carefully slightly lift the very small tab that locks the blue wire in and just pull it out.Requires no force if the tab is lifted.If you don't damage the tab you can just push the wire back in later.

I don't think you should get the DuOrb for the HD4850, for reasons stated here.

Why not the HR-03GT? It's not that much, you can get it for $42 at NCIXUS. Otherwise I would have to say go with the AC Accelero S1.
