Unhappy high temps.... not sure if this is safe

So I have a 3850, and have noticed some artifacting when playing FEAR, FEAR 2 demo, and FarCry 2, ran furmark and got these temps... Kinda crazy, I am at stock settings and everything...

Yep, it's running, just not sure how fast, I have tried a few apps to get it to run a bit faster but nothing works right... I even have a side intake blowing cool air right at the card so...

Ya, that's definitely bad on idle, and with an HD 3850, the card downlocks itself on Idle...

Can you do a screenie on Load? Also, try RivaTuner to set the default fan speed

Guess you didn't interperet the temps right, 97C load, 41C idle, 54C is only showing because I was watching a movie.

BTW, I can't get riva tuner to work in vista x64....
