55C idle 560 ti

Well I got a 560 ti and it rocks, except my mobo is pcie 1.0 so it bottlenecks (damn dell prefabs) anyways I immediately OC and over volted it. Currently it is at:
1.075V
950mhz core
2100mhz memory

is 55* ok for this tempature and can it damage it? It maxes out at 85-88* when on 100% load and I know that's not bad but will it get damaged over a long period of time, kinda like a slow-cooker?

Do you have more than 1 monitor? That would usually cause the high idle temps. If you don't, you may want to consider using MSI Afterburner to setup a more aggressive fan profile, as 55c is pretty high for idle temps.

My 560 Ti's in SLI would hit 82-84max(top card was hottest obviously) so a single card reaching those temps is worrisome.

How many case fans do you have? How many can it hold?

The voltage is the same as my PNY model was it ran @ 850 though so voltage looks ok. IF it's stable at those clocks/voltage it's fine, but you need to adjust your cooling to keep the temps down.

as I said its a terrible dell prefab and it has 1 exhaust case fan, one on the cpu, and then some intake holes on the side, but I normally keep the side plate off anyways. The hase has a total of 4 pci slots with the top 2 occupied by the gpu and bottom 2 left open. The fan pulls from the bottom of the case and pushes air outward from the edges (meaning out through where the wall isn't, towards the front of the case (to nowhere) and out the back. I run a 1080p display off hdmi (mini-hdmi>normal adapter came with the card_ and then dvi>vga adapter to a crt running 1600x1200.

Well, 2 suggestions then.

1. Put a box fan blowing into the case whilst gaming. That should push enough air to keep the temps in check.

2. Use Afterburner to set a more aggressive fan profile.

You can try #2 first as it's the easiest, make your fan profile look like this


If that's not enough, you can then try #1.

Well I mean it maxes out at 85 so its fine
