recently my HD 4850 is getting about 110+°C Idle(now) 85°C
I noticed my COmputer just turning off when playing some Games. (L4D²,Stalker Call of Pripyat)
This is not happening in COD:MW2 and Bioshock 2 I think because of lower graphics consumption.
(also Fan is less noisy while palying these Games)
I already removed my Card and look if the Fan had too much Dust in it but there was just some itchy black dust on the rifles.
What could be the problem Here?
Just recently happening!
109c is still too hot. I replaced the stock HS on my Sapphire 4850. It was hitting 105-110c as well. It would overheat and crash. I even tried re-applying the thermal compound and blew it out.... just bad design. I bought a Zalman VF1000 after-market HS and the temps dropped dramatically. It never broke 50c under load after the upgrade.
