Anyone here running a HD 4770?
Awesome GPU for the 99 euros price tag. I run most modern games at top settings in 1440x900 without any problems. And when I turn on AA, particularly MSAA, this thing even beats my other GTX 280 at this resolution!
But the thing I don't like is the temps. I have a PowerColor. For some reason it doesn't come with the cooler shown at AMD (with the air exhaust). It's just a dissipator and a fan.
On this machine with no airflow, I get idle temps on the early to mid 60s centigrade, and load temps jump to the early to mid 90s centigrade. I get better results with the side panel removed: early 50s idle, mid 80s on load. Clearly an airflow problem.
But I can't solve it now. So do you think these temps (with the machine closed) are off the roof and I really need to do something about it now, or I can relax and get a new case with proper airflow only when I can?
