Was replacing the cooler not an option?
also, the other HD3850 cards(non-asus) *should* allow fan control using rivatuner or repaired BIOS.

the card was only out of the box for 3 or 4 days. there were problems with it right away. so i didnt think i should have to replace the cooler.

curious thing happened. i used the beta of ati tool that i mentioned and turned the fan to 100%. ati tool reports the fan at 100 % but there is no increase in noise or airflow from the fan.

i would have thought that increasing from the stock 40% to 100 that it should get a lot louder, but nothing here.

thx
