The black cover over the coolers seems to restrict the airflow too much, especially the airflow to/from that central heatsink.
It should probably run a lot cooler without that cover.

Then we have the 2GB RAM, using up half of the 4GB available with 32-bit OS.
I'd not use a graphics card with more than 1GB RAM until I start running 64-bit OS or higher.

And my final question, applicable to all graphics cards:
- How well does it perform with Windows XP?

Cheers
Olle
