Default Will it make it?

Victim: 7950GT KO 512MB Ram

Incident: Rose to a blistering 118 C when the fan on the VF-900 stoped, noticed when everything to laggy in F.E.A.R, minimized, checked control panel, 118C, Immediate power off. Popped it out of the PCI slot, took off the fan, thermal grease is semi melted. No smell of burning. Put it by the cold window to cool down. Fan is too hot to touch, acctually have a burn on my finger from touching it.

So should it be fine?

Im using my back up 7900GT for now.


May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face, and may the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars
