  1. It depend on your card's model and brand...
    Mine, HIS HD 4850 idle at 59'C and never above 67'C when gaming... :)
    There's another 4850 cards that even idle at 30+ and about 40+ on full load.

    As u own a 4850 do u really think it has any heating issue ???
    Because i have read at many places that 4850 does have a overheating prob.
  3. Nope. That's a normal temp for HD4850, even that card can handle up to 100'C... :D
    yes, 48XX series cards are generates more heat, but still normal.
    For safety, just make sure your card is not above 80'C. :)
  4. How much your budget?
    Why don't u go for 5XXX series? More efficient, less heat and dx11 ability...
  5. I have a sapphire card with a non-stock cooler. It idles at 39 C (20% fan), and goes to 60 C (50% fan) at full load.
  6. The single slot 4850's had trouble with overheating i believe.
  7. @ omgitzfatal

    Correct

    @ godspeedz

    Could you please let us know which card exactly you have?
  8. If your in the market for a new GPU, why not go for a HD5750, it will perform about the same as a 4850, uses less heat, less power, and has DX11 support, There roughly the same price

    HD5750 = £90
    HD4850= £86

    Also the 5750 has 1GB of memory = better performance at higher res. and with AA enabled.
