There must be something up with your 3870. GPUs have the tolerances to run at 80C. Its not wise, but they can do it. Reference 4850s run at 80c constantly and you dont here reports of them crashing.

looking again at that rifle cooling system, i have 2 questions:
1.) where the **** does the fan attatch?
2.) i noticed it has the same push-pin system that my current HSF has... i obviously couldnt install this one correctly, do you know how i would install this one?

You push the pins and turn them. I really hate the push pin system myself. I think retention brackets (although scarier) are better. Im always afraid my HSF will fall off.

The fan screws onto the side of the hsf. The manual will give you detailed instructions. It's no rocket science.
