According to http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt...
It says: Maximum GPU Temperature (in C): 95C

That is accurate right? Because my card is running @ 80C after a couple mins of BF4 on Ultra in 1080p
Got the card new just wanna be safe rather than sorry

Anything under 90C is good to go.

This card is throttled for an optimum performance at 80C. As the specs say, 95C is the maximum, however that is an absolute maximum. Running your card at a sustained 80C is no problem, have fun. If you are running much higher on a consistent basis you should evaluate the rest of your machine.

Well, I'm also using automatic fan speeds. I will keep it no higher than 89C otherwise I will probably have to use a fixed RPM if that is an option atm it wont go past 79C of gameplay on ultra so that's good

I've done numerous benchmarks on my rig with 780's and even when they get taxed the fans kick it in to high gear to compensate, as long as you have your windows power usage set to a performance setting. You can also setup custom fan configs through various OC software, like MSI afterburner and a few others. I personally have not run into any need to do so yet, despite my initial hesitation when seeing the temps a few months ago. I don't think you have any real need to worry, but if you need to ease your mind, run a few bench tools like Sandra and IntelBurn with a good temp reader like realtemp and GPU-Z.

Thanks for the info. I'll keep that in mind. Atm i'm reading temps through HWmonitor and it seems to play BF4 on Ultra (1080p) @ 79C only 80C during the cutscenes at first but when playing and shooting people through campaign it is @ 79C which I feel comfortable with. I won't get worried unless it goes over 85C and if so, i'll put another fan on the top of my case and blow it right on top of the GPU. But I have so many fans as it is so if it comes down to it I might try using my 7th fan as a vent

That should be fine. Make sure the cards fans are ramping up just to be sure.
