well with winter drawing in and new baby the heatings on alot of the day.his isnt good for my pc.my 4850 has been getting a bit hot and normally at 50 % on the fan has cured it but last few days ive noticed slow down in cod4 and temps been higher.so i upped it to 80% while gaming :eek:its a bit noisy but it aint slowing down now.is it safe for prolonged use to leave the fan at above 75-100 percent all time.

im thinking of getting a different cooler which is best /lowest profile /cheapest price.

also is there any passive silent ones without a fan.
