Hey folks. I have a X1800XT with stock cooler Antec case with extra 120mm fan. My temps (according to cat control center) will go up to 85 C. This seems high to me. What temp is the Danger point? Got all my fans on high to.

i am resonably certain u are okay with that.. the existance of the 1900xtx which runs up there even in temperate England kinda proves u are okay..

just dont buy a 1900xtx and remain in texas.. unless u invest in some better aircon.. he he he

With stock settings, the fan dosen't even come on 100% until around 90*C. You should be fine.

I think you mean the fan doesn't reach 100% until 90c... it's always running ;)
