Default 4870 Temps too High?

Hey guys,
Idle: 57C
Load: 93C
Too hi im guessing? This is with the stock cooler @ 25%. My xigmatek Battleaxe is messed up. THey did not include the correct ramsinks so you cant put sinks on the 2 ram's below the heatpipes because they are too close. Xigmatek being the retards they are didnt include low profile ones. I cant find any that will fit. And no amount of cutting will make the ones i have fit. Soo tomorrow i will call xigmatek and give them a yelling. I either want a different product that works. Or a refund...

93C, Its very high. My 4870 with stock cooler, 30% fan speed would reach 65C MAX during gaming.

30-40% fan speed will control the high temps.

I really dont want to, trying to keep this silent, even 25% is too loud. Any suggestions on a good cooler that i can run with fans on really low?

I'm not surprised that the HR-03 GT cooler is the best cooler for the 4870. However, I thought that Thermalright's new T-Rad thingy would be revolutionary yet it gets beaten by the low-quality and cheap S1 Rev. 2 cooler. What an embarrassment!

I'm running my 4870 stock heatsink at 25% which results in a load of about 70 degrees at 790/4000. I can't go higher until I flash this card. Once that happens of course I'll need one of these aftermarket heatsinks to go along with it...

I had the S1 Rev. 2 on a 4850 card over the summer. That cooler works well but it's such a cheap piece of $hit in terms of build quality.
