MSI Afterburner question

I am using MSI afterburner to monitor and overclock my GPU. I am trying to use the user defined fan control auto settings, but am wondering about the best way to adjust the sliding scale.

This is how it is set...

Sapphire Radeon HD6970 920CC/1430MC

Curve mode - linear

0-20 degrees = 20 fan speed
50 degrees = 30 fan speed
60 degrees = 40 fan speed
70 degrees = 50 fan speed
80 degrees = 60 fan speed
90 degrees = 70 fan speed
100 degrees = 80 fan speed

Fan speed update period = 5000 milliseconds
Temperature hysteresis = 0

Any input/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Are those temps on Celsius? or Fahrenheit, because if your GPU hit the 100ºC you will have a lot of problems, I'd not go above 70ºC.

Celsius.

I usually get around 80 at max load (crysis 2 w/ DX11 and High Res textures).

80ºC isn't very high but if your can get lowers temps, that would be better.

Thanks. I got the fan set to where the gpu barely ever goes above 75.

Thanks for your input - it was helpful.
