HP PCs come with cheap case and cooling solution. Since the OBV is part of the chipset, there's no quick and easy way to lower the temperature.
In general, most HP PCs with OBV are cheaply made with "value" components. You could switch to a PCIE-16x GPU if the OBV goes poof. Course it could also take down the other components.

That's what I'm worried about, since it's an integrated card that's running at 70-80 degrees at peak temp I'm worried it'll damage other components of the board.
I like the quality of the card, but is there a better one out there that's cheap ?
