Playing Cronicles of Riddick just then, and my Card hit 79-80...

Saw no Artefacts at all though..

That is very hot, but i hear they can handle 120 :uhm:

It is Overclocked at 1.35Ghz memory and 570Mhz Core...

Would you suggest i got new cooling?

My Card. I hear that the stock 7800 cooling is real shoddy.

In that case, it might be worthwhile investing in a new cooler - Arctic Cooling would be the best way to go. You may want to get some more thermal paste for your VPU as well.

But remember, replacing the stock cooler will void your warranty.

I am aware of that.

Problem is, my local retailer doesn't stock Artic Cooling, and I don't know if you can get it in Australia without importing it. It should be worth it though.

Are they difficult to put on? Any issues happening?

Not really; most coolers are held on by brackets and screws. Providing you get the correct model cooler for your graphics card chipset, you should have no problems installing it. The only major issue might be taking off the old paste and re-applying the new stuff.

My X800GTO uses an Arctic Cooling NV series, and the PCB temperature rarely goes over 40 degrees under load, and stays between 20 and 30 degrees idle. Excellent cooler, well worth the price.

Yea, thats a great cooler! Buy it i recommend, but watch out to buy the right one, because they are selling identically looking coolers, but each is made for a/multiple diffrent Generations of Cards, so dont forget to read through the specs carefully, to make sure you get the right one!
