How hot does your 9860 get? What card is hotter the x800 or the 6800? If you have the 6800, is it DDR or DDR 3?

It's crashed a couple times during gaming in a week.
I took it to the Sager factory today and had them look at it, (lucky me, they are close ) They said the thermal compound on the CPU was only so-so. So they re-did that, but said the video card looked fine. Hopefully the crashes will stop, but I still expect 125f exhaust.
By the way, I have the 6800 with DDR3.

btw I tried taking the battery out too, but the cable falls out a lot, and I got sick of losing buttloads of work.
