GTX 480 in flames

Hey guys, just finished building my new pc. my GTX 480 is a beast, pretty much runs anything without dropping below 75 fps. anyways i think i set up a decent airflow, i seem to be running my card at low temps. been running it all day on and off. at full load while playing im able to keep the card under 75 C, what is a safe range of temps to keep the card in (in Celsius)? What is the max temp i should watch out for and what is high temps where i should let it cool down?

Thanks ahead of time! =]

    Exactly, those are very nice temps. You will be safe even in the low 90's. Once it hits 96 or so then you can get a little worried.
  9. OP are you running a Silverstone RV01. RV02, or FT02? Those cases keep the GTX 4xx series extremely cool.
