Default Sapphire Radeon HD4850 dual-slot fansink



This is the exact card I got for my new gaming system (listed in my sig). I must say, when I bought the card I was expecting another dumb card with plastic housing over the heatsink (for directed airflow and reduced profile), but I'm glad I got this one instead (I didn't know what was in the box). Not only does it look like it's going to be easier to clean dust out of, but it appears that it will keep my GPU cooler as well.

It idles at 36C, and hasn't gone past 47C yet during load (Half Life 2 Deathmatch). I've yet to put it through it's paces.

(If anyone has a good GPU stress-test program I'd use it).

Any particular bits of information or commentary you'd like to give me relating to this specific model compared to others?
