Hello, I have a GTX 560 Ti, EVGA Super Clocked Edition ( I under clocked it a bit lol to default clocks myself)
Anywas, While playing watchdogs, this thing goes crazy, Hitting 78-80 Degrees while playing it on High settings. 1980x1080.
MY CPU's on 45-50 While playing aswell, I just wanted to know if these temps are safe? Thx!

Thats completely normal for a game with graphics such as Watch_Dogs. 78-80 is quite high, but completely safe. Make sure you have good ventilation and that the card doesn't get much higher than that

those temps arent that unusual.

is your fan working at 100 percent? if not you could use msi afterburner to set up a more aggressive fan profile

also make sure the heatsink is clear of dust

nah. i would run a more aggressive fan profile with msi afterburner though. just to get the temp down to a more comfortable level

Seconded.
I dont like my 260x getting over 75c and this curve doesnt let it,even with the hot-running 14.6 catas.

I wouldn't touch a thing. Fermi cards were more designed to aim for the mid to upper 80c's. Its summer and you're playing a game that's demanding 99% GPU usage. Believe it or not your temps are actually pretty good.
