Default Asus EAH4850 temp

Hey all,
I am wondering if any of you have experience with this 4850. My issue is with heat. I do only plan on using stock cooling, no overclocking. Have they improved temperature issues since the release? Thanks for any info!

Newegg.com - ASUS EAH4850/HTDI/1G/A Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

No experience with it, but it looks to be a decent cooler.

Unless you are depending on the rebate you would do better going with this one from XFX (lifetime warranty):
Newegg.com - XFX HD-485X-ZDFC Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

No card will run cool unless you have decent airflow through your case. If it is keeping hot air trapped inside it will make your card run hot, too.

+1 to the XFX, I have it. Idles around the mid-low 40s, and load is low-mid 50s.

Coolmaster Centurion 534, horrible airflow case . But I've added a 80mm fan to the side vent and I leave the side panel open bit. Waiting on some sycthe fans to arrive, sucks living up north lol, every thing takes a week+ to get here..

The xfx is a great card though, mine had some "hissing" issues, but they're gone now so idk really what that was about.
