A small bump in fan speed gives a large drop in temps. @ 35% fan speed a 4870 loads(folding) around 60 vs 82. Its a little louder then i would like, but still not too much of a pain. For normal use the fan control is left on auto. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Lag on ATI Radeon HD 4850 Forum HD 4850 - Which brand? 512MB or 1GB? Overheat problem ?
