Thumbs down Holy Temps!

After switching from the 9800 GTX+ to my new HD4870, I ran some benchmarking with furmark to see what kind of temps the 4870 would make during stress. (i got over 30 more fps with the HD 4870 fyi :D)

Anyways, check out this screenshot from only a minute and a half of stress..... I think I need to invest in an aftermarket cooler.

That test was with the fan at 75% sounding like a Boeing 757

I have to wear a welding glove just to touch the card

But in all seriousness, I just lightly touched the backside of the gpu and seriously burnt my finger....

If NCIX ships out my other one tonight, I'll have it tomorrow morning and see if the one I have now just has issues or something...... Hopefully there not all that hot.

My NCIX invoice here states February 26th was the date of purchase. I also purchased the shipping insurance and express rma, so I may RMA it after I get my other 4870 and see if it runs this hot.
