Radeon 9800XT temperature

My new 9800XT reports a temp of 65C at idle, and goes as high as 75C while gaming. Is this normal for these cards? My case has plenty of ventilation...the cpu is usually around 40C. Also, anyone know of a good aftermarket cooler for this card? I have my eyes on the Thermaltake Extreme Giant III.

Thanks,
Mark

i can't help you with the temperature, but i had a thermaltake giant III on my FX595000 and its really nice. I think it dropped my temps 10-15 degrees. the dual heatpipes look great and its not too loud unless u have the hamsterwheel on, and i dont think it does anything for temps.

75 seems toasty, but ~65 seems normal.

Oh and welcome aboard AoA.

The arctic coolers are rated well, if you dont know what they are take a peak here, http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...oolers_57.html

As for temps my asus 9800xt is currently sitting at 52C core, 47C ram. The computer has been on about 14 hours folding so the cpu / case is fairly toasty but gpu hasnt been used really.
