Default Extremely Hot GFX Card!!!

Ok, my video is getting VERY VERY HOT, now that it's starting to get warm. I ran the ATI Tool Artifacts tester went up to 102ºC


I'm buying this and AS5. I also need the alchohol and wipes needed as well.

Should i go for next day shipping and get it here now or should i be alright for a little while.

thats NOT good at all, order express ASAP and get that old stuff off, also get an aftermarket fan/cooler and make sure there is good airflow in your case.

I took of the side and rigged my fan on my sade to blow air directly onto the video card. It brought the temp down to 80ºC. Also, i need to know where i can get the alchohol, and what wipes i need to take off the old thermal paste.

EDIT: Atleast its safe now.
