Here is a pic with the x1950 and my old CPU cooler, its now a TRUE with 2x noctua p12's on it.

Sorry, but no way is in an airflow issue, nothing under it generating any heat, and the inlet fan on the bottom essentially blows right into the card. Like I said that x1950 was at 30 TOPS idle and 50 TOPS load, most of the time it was 5-10 degrees less than that.

That is running XP and rivatuner only, 500/650 cycles are every 2 seconds, plus a min of 54*idle, and it takes about 30min of idling to get there after loading it...
