HD4850 runs pretty hot...

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello,
well I have my HD4850 for 2 years now, and it has always ran, especially in summer (like now). So, for example, when I play BC2, my avg gpu temperature is 105C, and it went once to 109C! What should I do with it?

Get that can of compressed air out! lol
If that doesn't do much, you could reseat its heatsink after putting some fresh TIM on the core.

good luck man!
BC2: Ruderalis

That's normal for 4850's. There's nothing you can do besides upping the fan speed, replacing the thermal paste, or getting a new cooler.

you should clean it out. reapply the thermal tape and thermal paste. are you OC this card?

take it apart, clean it and most importantly apply new thermal paste. i did it like a week ago with my 8800 ultra and im idling on 50s instead of 70s and in max stress im @ 85C instead of 105C with ambient of 25C.

Thanks for the tips.
It runs that hot by default. I have OCed it to 700/1100MHz, and there was no difference in gpu temperature (it must be a low OC )

PS: Would a PCI slot Fan do something good to the temperature?

Not as much as applying new thermal paste.

I have cleaned it out, and I have applied a new thermal paste, and it is just 1-2C better.

So I can do nothing. Well, I think my GPU is just gay...
