The thermal paste shipped with stock graphics cards and CPUs is notoriously low quality. I saw a review (can't remember from who) where they lowered the temps (and as a result, noise) on the 4850 by 10 to 15 degrees C, simply by removing the original paste and replacing with Arctic Silver Ceramique (small syringe retails for less than $10).

I did the same thing on my 2900XT (but using Arctic Silver 5), and now the fan never revs up over 33% (way quieter).
