So the card i got is a ATI Radeon HD 4850 which i just put in my stock computer case which was a compaq computer(small case). The card ran at 90c+ at idle and with some newer games even overheated a couple times. so i bought one 80mm fan for the back of the case, that lowered maybe 1 degree at most but was still running around 89-90C at idle. Also upgraded the PS along with the card. So now i thought with the small stock case maybe it wasnt getting enough air circulation. So i went ahead and bought a brean new case that came with a 120mm fan. This actually lowered the temp to around 85-86 at idle(some games still temperatures get to at least 100C).

 So now i don't know what to do, i know a gpu card is not supposed to run that hot. I don't know if i can do anything else to cool it or if i just need to invest in a better GPU or does this card known to run hot? P.S. checked the fan on the card itself and it is running.
