My FirePro V8700 runs very hot

1.  This card has always seemingly run hot from day one.

2.  The squirrel-cage fan winds up fast at startup but then idles down and never changes no matter what I do stress-wise.

3.  Though "hot" is an arbitrary term, even my service company noticed it and saw fit to warn me during a desktop service repair.

4.  The card is out of my computer right now so I can't check it with an IR gun though I'd like to.

5.  My setup is similiar to a upper-level gamer's rig AMD-based Phenon II and a CAD card.


Anyone else running a high-end ATI card having this issue?


Thanks ahead of time...
