  1. Ive bought Leadtek GF4 Ti4200 128mb. Now, it works fine, without problems but Ive tuched its passive cooler (which is over 2/3 of card) after hour or so, and it is so hot that i've almoust burned my self!!! that card's cooler had about 60-70°C!
    is that normal? card works fine!!!

    and one thing, why i get result of 9700 at 3dmark 2001SE after turning all off (AA, AS & Vsync)?
    it says that i shuld get 11000!!!

    They do run fairly hot. Maybe you need more airflow in your case to carry off the heat. I usually run positive air pressure. (More CFM on the fans in than on the exhaust fans out) I also like to pull the blank panel out of slot 1 to allow air to exhaust past the Video heatsinks and take some of the heat out there.

    i have casis open all the time and large fan blowing on all hardware. it helps with system and cpu temp (both down for about 5°C) but graphic card is still hot like hell.
    i managed to get 11439 on 3dmark, 439 better than usual ti4200 score :grinthumb but it is so high only when i turn of everything... i dont want everything turned off so my card would work fine :mad: , thats why ive bought Ti4200 so that i can play 3d games in 1024x768, 32bit, least 4x AA & 4x AS...
