Mercury GeForce4 Ti 4200 Gfx card

Im having problems with the temperature of the gfx card. I know the fan blows into the gfx card, but cant feel much air escaping anywhere around the sides.  the fan is spinning. I have a temperature probe sitting on to of the card and its running about 10 to 20 degrees more hotter than it used to.
What can i do, i dont want it to fry and die!?

tia, jaybob_

This particular model was never one of their best.
Even though the fan is spinninng it doen't mean that it's working properly.
Make sure you have the latest drivers
There are some bad reviews on your card here

If you can go for a graphics card without the fan unit, do it as these fans seem to cause more overheating problems than they are worth.
If the card is new try having it swapped

You can also take a look at this => http://www.zalman.co.kr/english/product/zm80a-hp.htm that is if you want to replace your cooler: no noise, no mechanical parts, I have to say I use it on both of my home computers and never had any problems with it.
