  1. The idle temps are a bit high compared to these over here http://imagescdn.tweaktown.com/content/5/1/5158_40_sapphire_radeon_hd_7870_xt_tahiti_le_2gb_with_boost_overclocked_video_card_review.png . The load temperature should be 63 according to this review, and the auto fan speed is used, which i think is controlled automatically in a way that when the load on the gpu increases, the speed of the fan increase, you can check all of this (temp, fan speed) using MSI afterburner, great program and easy to use.
  2. What case do you use and how many fans are you using.

    thank you .. my idle temp was 33-35c, but when i played PES 2014 it goes to 45 and stay there..even after i close the game it stays at 44c all the time, but after i shut down my pc for a while it goes back to 33c again.
    the fan speed is noisy when it pass 50% ..so what should be the fan speed % when the temp are at 63?

    Your GPU exhausts all the heat back into your case. I have one also and to get more airflow you should install an intake fan in the front and an exhaust fan at the top. This will improve airflow and will pull more of the heat from your case.

    unfortunately i think i don't have much space at the front for a fan, but i have at the side panel .. would it still be a good choice if i install intake fan at the side instead of front?

    It shows a front fan as optional for your case but a side fan would also be beneficial.
