That cooler appears to have a very nice design to it, heat piped and all, so you should be all set with that.

I find it entertaining to read through all of these comments.
As a tech 40 hours a week working with computers and replacing components, I don't claim to be an expert by any means. I do find it interesting though that I just happened across this thread and read all these issues relating to heat and people claiming that the software is killing their hardware (HA!) and thinking "Why haven't I been having any issues?".

I run a Dual quad core 3Ghz Mac Pro with an ATI 4870. 4 GB's 800Mhz FBDIMMS

I boot into Windows XP to run the game and I barely notice the fan noise.

Software doesn't kill hardware unless it's designed to overwrite safeguards. (Period)

And I'm not saying get a Mac, or a Mac is better, however it is probably built better than most PC's unless you really know what you are doing and spend the money to do it instead of cutting corners and throwing together frankenstein machines and claiming godhood.

I played beta for about 2 weeks. After beta, inanticipation of launch I moved my computer to a much cooler location (Downstairs next to a window) cleaned the case, and the 3 fans on my case. Put my daughter down for a nap at around 11:30am pst. Played for about 3 or so hours and my game crashed about 3 times, then my video card died. In normal mode everything lookslike boxes and i cant do anything. In safe mode i have to shut down the display adapter. Now i can use my computer with 5 sets of blue lines on my screen.

I've read the issues people had and attempted to keep my machine cool by doing everything other than change my FPS ingame. I got too eager to play and did not change my ingame video options at all.

Now what do i do? I tried to reinstall the drivers but nothing.

The errors that came up when the computer restarted stated "windows is shutting down to not cause further damage to the system," and this is because "there was an infinite loop in one of my Niv files". Reinstal the video drivers and contact the manufacturer if the problem persists.

My system is as follows; AMD 64 x2 dual core 4400+ WinXP Pro, Geforce 8800 GTS, 2 gig ram.
