Ok what is your spec's? and there are things we can do to get you cooler. Just post your spec's. Your temps are way to high. Also when posting your spec's Name brand of PSU and how many watts?

What are you using to check your temps? What is the your PC case?

Holy nuts. Is your Vostro a half height on the desk unit or a normal tower PC? If it's a half heigh unit it's probably lacking any airflow through the case which is resulting in a crazy hot card.

Regardless though, if you just bought the card then I would also seriously consider a return/exchange because a relatively weak card like that should never hit temps that high during non-stress situations. The 4350 is designed for HTPC use and should idle more around 40'C, not 70'C.

Just to be on the safe side would you be willing to use MSI Afterburner to get a second opinion? Also what games are you playing and the resslution you are at? Here is a link to MSI Afterburner and Manual.

Are you saying you don't know what PSU means or are you saying you don't know type of size power supply you have? If it is this one of the two there should be a sticker on the PSU that states the size and power that it puts out.

Also how old is your HD 4350? The case is it full size or mid size or store bought size?
When was the last time you cleaned it out of dust build up. And do you have any case fans that you are using to exhaust and or bring in air to the case?

I am all with the clean it post(dust build up can cause just this kind of thing on video cards and cpu heatsinks). I have a passive 4350 those cards run cool.

The board for the card is noticeably smaller compared to a full height and the case is more slim than a normal case. Also smaller power supply unit. I don't understand how people not know the difference.

Here is your Case the dell Vostro 200 which is only about 14 in, tall and 3 1/2 in wide and 17 in deep. That is one reason your running high temps. Your not getting air flow plus it has to be dirty on the inside.

I will bet if you take the dirt out you might see a change. Another thing you can do it take off the side and put a house fan pointing at it and see how cool it makes your temps.

Your case is what they call a slim line case. You probley are limited to the low profile cards. You might be able to run a 6670 low profile card with that 250w PSU.

Since Dells OEM PSU's are a lot better than other brands. Here is the link to your case.

a 6670 would also be a world of difference from the 4350

Just tested 62c max 50-52c with web surfing. And that thing is fanless low profile, but 2 slot cooler(mostly to clear board parts).

OP I just realized you have two threads going with different headings. I should have caught that when I first commented on your other thread.
