It also shows the same temps as CPUZ and the ATI gfx temp gadget I got. Guess my card is really ice cold compared to others, but I think mine has newer firmware because I believe older 4850 did not UC when on 2d apps.

From what little reading I did on this, it seems that driver updates fixed the "issue" to some degree or another... but again, that line just runs hotter than most. That you have two fans probably explains why your temps are much lower?

What are your load temps like?

well before my room became a sauna, It was 50c mostly. Now its highest is 61c. I play all games with at least AA 8x, so that doesn't help the heat, but it seems not bad. This whole thread was just me puzzled that turning it off didn't drop the temps some.

Also, you need to remember that your ambient temperatures do affect how well your computer cools.

Yea I know. Thats why it doesnt bother me, but still, It just didnt make sense, because the cpu cooled from 46c turning off after medium load, to 32c ._.

Ok well, it now gets a top temp of 60c playing games. It used to not, but it was also on xp, and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. It stays colder than usual, and I keep the fan amped to 50% with msi afterburner, because VPU recovery causes crashing sometimes. Guess I need to stop being paranoid. Although, I left it off over night and yet again the gfx card doesnt cool off, but the cpu and all does, go figure.

60C while gaming is excellent temperatures, the new Fermi cards idle at that temperature. Don't worry about it.

My graphics card hits 70C ever time I play any game, and it's a 5770 which are supposed to be the cooler cards. Don't freak till it hits 90C.

As for artifacting, well that occurs from overclocking. If you bought a factory overclocked card, return it as defective, if you bought a stock card, you may be able to return it as defective, and if you're OCing yourself, then reduce your OC.
