So I've got a 4870x2 headed to me and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what to do to get it running correctly.

I've read that the card doesn't downclock in 2D, and that the stock settings will let the card heat to ~96 before the fan really kicks in.

Advice anyone?

It does downclock, though not as much as you might think (mine drops to 500 core/2000 mem from 750 core/3600 mem). Still, it runs quite warm at idle. I wouldn't worry about it too much, as they are designed for the temps. If you're worried though, the fan on it is ridiculous, and you can achieve pretty much any temps you want by bumping the fan up. It's really loud at the higher speeds though.
