US EAH4850 TOP/HTDI/512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Noticed the card runs warmer than any other component on the board during an idle test (15 mins of no commands). Fan seems to work fine but how hot is hot for a vid card and what would be a threshold for measuring other than seeing smoke or smelling something burning?

For the 4 series, between 30 and 40 at idle, going up into the low 60's under load.

While really good, they were a really hot series.
