The hottest I've seen it get yet in a regular game is, oddly enough, during a dice mini game in The Witcher. For some reason that little mini game gets the gpu cooking to about 88-89c.

Using the default fan profile btw.
I've never owned a 4870+ card. I used to have an AIW 9800 card back in the day...but since then, I've always used nVidia cards.
