GTX 275 Overheating?

Is my EVGA GTX 275 Superclocked overheating?

In power-saving mode with the fan on auto (40%) it IDLES at ~52C. When "FurMark-ing" :D  , I have to turn the fan speed to 100% and then it will get up to 94C (At STANDARD CLOCKS!)

I even just rebuilt most of my computer so that I actually did a good job of wire management, and now the Antec 900's upper HDD fan can provide more airflow.

Well forget about Furmark, fire up a game benchmark, like RE5 benchmark, that can loop in your gaming resolution/settings and can more replicate real world gaming. If that can stay stable don't worry what BURN MODE can drive your very powerful card to.
Unigen Heaven Demo in dx10 mode is also a good relative test.

Normal Gaming usually only gets my card up to 65C - 85C, depending on the game. But that's still pretty hot isn't it?

Well yeah, but that's the temperature that it will probably actually die at. Also, whether the fan is on auto or not, it forces it to 100% at 100C (from my experience) so It's impossible to get to 105C anyway.

I heard others saying you should keep it under 70C to be safe. Is that true?

If not then I guess my temps are fine but they really do seem very high.

Lower is better but how low you can get it would depend on the HSF that the card has and if it's a reference design then what you are getting is the best that HSF can do.
