I am using a Radeon 4550 with passive cooling. In the past month or so, it's gotten very noisy. Playing any game and it emits a lot of whistling.
I've taken it out, cleaned it etc, doesn't seem to help. Using ATI's Catalyst Controller, under the load of any game, the temperature is about 65C. Is that too hot?
I've had it about 7 months but the warranty has me sending it back, waiting 10 days, etc, which is a huge nuisance. Is there anything I can do to, basically, shut it up?! Any sort of better cooler?
