    I'm running a Radeon 9800XT, and it seems to me as though it may be running a little hot. Right now at idle its registering a temperature of 75c, only jumps 2-3 degrees under load; which is a drop from the 85 it was idling at until I cleaned the heatsink. I've read through alot of different forums and I've seen alot of different tempuratures ranging from 32c to 79c idle. I hear you all here are a really reliable source so I wanna know if anyone here is running similar temps, and if not what ideas some of you might have for helping drop mine.

    A link for you

    I was reading about a mod for a 9800 pro to 9800 XT and it was suggested that 70c may be a temperature you would see with poor cooling, and that improvements might manage to drop this as much as 10 degrees.

    Have a look here for a guide to the cooling they used.
