9800GX2 heat problems

My 9800GX2 is at 71-74*C idle and to a 89*C on skyrim medium with all distances at full.I put arctic silver 5 on it and had no gain so i got SpeedFan to control the speed of my GPU fan and turned it to always full. Now it stays at 48-52 idle and a max of 68*C on same setings of skyrim. So my question is shall i leave it like that or should i turn it to 90-95% and how?

    If you can stand the noise, I used to have 2 of those in the same PC and they were hot and loud. If it isnt too loud keep the fans cranked up.
  2. It will fail soner?
