Default Max temp of the Radeon™ X1950 PRO

Can someone tell me what the max temp of the Radeon™ X1950 PRO is, because at the moment the ATI Catalyst™ control centre is around 105c when playing Stalker clear sky with every thing on max, is that not a little hot!! Seems to be playing fine although it did crash about an hour ago.

Cheers.

standard case i guess, with one exhaust fan, 1 CPU fan that has life a sort of manifold over it so it directly blows out of the case. and 1 GPU fan, quite a lot of airflow and space in it.

So is that too hot then?

maybe try clearing all the dust off in the card to have better airflow.

i think the best way to clean off the dust is to take off the heatsink and clean it, though i dont recommend doing as you might damage your card if not careful.

do you think it just might be a problem with the censor?

Check your other temps if they seem off it could be your sensor no?
