    SAPPHIRE 100107-RD Radeon X800 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card

    It's running at around 55C under heavy load which is a little to hot for my tastes. Anyone have a good aftermarket product that will keep her cooler?

    BTW no watercooling, only air.

    Thanks.

    55C seems very normal for a video card under load. I think mine hits 70C under load.

    If you still want better cooling, try one of those nv silencers.

    55°c is fine for a video card, but if you want to go cooler, one of the arctic cooling silencers would probably drop it down a bit more. They exhaust the heat right out the back of the case as opposed to circulating it around in the case.
