The fan is really quiet too.
How did you fit a 120mm fan on your card? I was under the impression it was only big enough for two 80mm fans. Thanks for the reply btw.

I need to do a mod like this on my 4850. The bloody thing just got past 105C after 10 minutes of ati tools stressing. Does anyone has any suggests on how to mod the crappy single slot on 4850's?

Not really, You could try putting a 80/90mm fan over the existing fan forcing air in through the hole. But other than that, I don't think there's much you can do.

You can do a similar mod as the OP did in this thread. Remove the plastic housing, and attach a 80mm or 92mm fan to it.

I can't promise you will get the best results, that single slot stock cooler was one of the worst heatsinks ever designed. I ditched my stock coolers about 2 days after I got the cards.

The 4850's don't have a open heatsink design. i don't think it will be effective.

Guys, you won't belive this. I Just took the 4850 cooler off to clean it and see if my temps would get a bit better. I Took of the cooler's plastic cover just to discover that there was a WALL of dust blocking airflow throughout the card.

I just run ATitools for 10 minutes (just like I did yesterday) with the fan speed @ 70% Results? 78C!!

So I went from 106C+ 100% fan speed to 78C 70% fan speed. That's almost 30C taken away by just cleaning dust!

So here's a top tip to 4850 owners: clean your cards

Yea, dust really gets caked in there. It's pretty much impossible to get it all out with compressed air, so you really need to take them apart every once and a while.

Does anyone know if you can even fit a 120mm fan on a 260/280?
