Hello all, it's been quite awhile since I have posted but I have an issue and would really love some feedback. My problem simply is that I purchased SC2 today and when only on the login/menu my 4850 runs at 110 degrees, and I am running ATI overdrive with fans at 100% !!... So my question to the community is, is this safe and can it damage anything and can you recommend any great gpu coolers under $100 from www.ncix.com ? This would be greatly appreciated, as I don't want to do any damage to my card...

Ps I would purchase a better card but I'm waiting it out until D3 comes out to buy a new rig.

awesome, thanks for the quick reply. My only other concern is whether this cooler will severely reduce temps while playing sc2 and what not. I have never really bothered with after stock coolers before so I am unsure of how it will work. I read the review and saw that it really reduces noise level but while stressed showed drops in temps by 12ish. Can it possibly drop it by more?

no clue I personally don't own the cooler. All I can say is zalman has a great brand name in aftermarket cooling and hardware secrets do some of the most thorough reviews around so I'll take their word on it.
