just to tell you guys. the card never goes over 65C when gaming it only goes up to 75-80C when doing the AtiTool 3d test. but ill still change the fan because even at low speed the fan is still pretty loud AND im planning to OC it.

I wouldn't say it's that hot, I get the same temps on my x1900gt. If you were to get something new though, get the vf900

i am soooooooooooooooooo disappointed at how the vf900 cooled my x1950xt. its true that it is extremely quiet but it cools worst than the stock cooler.

Stock cooler: 100% fan speed
idle=56C
load=74C
VRM load=62C

VF900: 100% fan speed
idle=44C
load=82C
VRM load=90C

whats even worst about this cooler is that is expells heat inside the case instead of outside so it heats up my opteron 144 to 47C
