Default ATi x1950xt overclock....?

I hear most people saying that the x1950xt runs hot and that you should get an aftermarket cooler. Are you guys saying it runs hot if you overclock it? Because I don't plan on overclocking it.... it should be ok if I don't overclock it right?

I will probably overclock it in Jan 2008...

Yea...those XT's put out quite a bit of heat...but if you have good airflow, and a side intake, you should be fine.

If you have the one with no window, I think it has a vent on the side, that you can mount or tie a fan to.

it would be awesome if there were PCI-e slots were under the the PCI slot so theres extra cooling on the vid card (also that the fan points down for the PCI cooler)
