I hope you tried to do the HD 4850 fan hack before considering a new one...

ARCTIC COOLING Accelero S2
Thermalright HR-02
Zalman VGA

Those are good ones

to the fan hack guy,

By the fan hack, do you mean to just force the fan to run at 100% speed. Or is there something else I can do?

I don't recommend 100%.... maybe like 40% that's what my 4870 runs at and it doesn't go above 50C

40-45% is the best way to go
