What would be an acceptable % fan speed? Currently here is my profile: http://omg.wthax.org/7ZYjZp.png

I've only begun tinkering with fan speed and I'm trying to see if my profile is good or bad. Been reading that 100% fan speed is bad and idk if putting it around 80-90 is any better. It generates a decent amount of noise. But it's really bearable. Basically I'm just trying to ask if I should be changing my fan speed or putting it to auto. My GPU's max temp. was at around 81c at auto. When I put a fan profile it went down by 10c but the fan speed was at 88%. I don't want my GPU breaking either. If it's just the fan it should be replaceable. but the GPU itself is what I'm worried about. Anyways my GPU is if you need to know: EVGA NVIDIA GTX 760. Stock cooler.

Yes than fan profile is fine.
As long you don't sustain 100% for long period of time, your card's fans should be fine.

putting it at 70% Will not hurt the fans at all and will cool it well. Honestly, keep it at auto, usually the stock coolers reach up to 92c. Thats really good for your gpu. Either put it at 70% or auto is the best choices :D
