Hey guys I have recently posted on this forum. My final situation is this. I am totally scared to death about breaking this X1800XT i have. So I want it to be cooled efficiently w/o using aftermarket coolers or watercoolers. Basically jsut keep it stock. My temps on the videocard for me is 59c on idle and 85c on full power (Age of Empire III, and Quake 4 to name a few games). Am I safe at this temperature and have the default setting + stock cooler do its business? Or should I use ATI Tool to change the fan speed to 50-75percent full time? Oh and one more question. Will using ATI Tool and changing the speed of the fan might destroy my videocard quicker?
