Safe/Acceptable Temps? (5770)

Hey gang. I have a Sapphire Vapor-x 5770 and lately I've been worrying about the temperatures it reaches. Earlier today I was playing Borderlands when the card was hovering at a constant 70 degrees celcius with the fan at 50%. Is this a safe temperatute for it to be running at? Also how much cooler do the Vapor-x models run compared to the standard 5770's? Any input here would be appreciated.

  1. 70c is cool and more then saf, video cards can reach 100c and still operate fine.

    FYI, i don't know why but Borderlands really pushes a card's temp. My card runs hotter on that game then Crysis, far Cry 2, RE 5, etc.,
  2. How hot can a 5770 become before I should shut it down? Also just to elaborate on my first post is it safe for my GPU to be running at 70 C for a few hours?

    1. the 5770 will shut itself down if it gets too hot and most cards will pass 105-110c before they do

    2. it was designed to run at 70c+ for hours, why would it not be safe?
  4. 70C is a good temp, I used to have a MSI 5770, that went up to the 80's on full load. You should be fine.

    I tend to worry a lot. Thanks for the input guys.
