Well ive had my 4850s for a while.

One Sapphire the Other HIS.

Now the HIS is fine but the Sapphire ones seems to be getting gradually hotter plus the Fan dosent seem to be moving as fast and when i first got it.

I used to idle at 35-40 and load at 50-55.

Now i idle at 40-45 and Load at 55-65.

Dunno if i should RMA the card.

I also check CPUZ for the RPM on each card and the HIS is at 9000rpm at 60% fan speed.

Whilst the Sapphire one is at 7000rpm at 80% ??

Im guessing the Fan is slowly dieing ??

That small increase in temp could be because of the increased ambient temperature in you room?

EDIT: I cant read.

You could always try to reapply new thermal compound and reset the cooler.

Dust buildup around fan/heatsink? My old 7800GT's HS/Fan was a dust trap, I had to blow it out every few months.

Already Cleaned it out


The Wierd thing is it used to do the same as the HIS 9000rpm at 65%.

I can Actually hear the difference aswell.

The Sapphire at 80 and the HIS at 80.

The Sapphire isnt producing as much RPM and less noise aswell.

Even at 100% the sapphire isnt loud.

When i first got the Sapphire at 100% it was loud. Jet engine !
