Sapphire 4850x2 2gb idle temperature

I recently received a new sapphire 4850x2 after RMA'ing my old one. I am wondering if 50c idle is okay for this card? The default idle fan speed is 3%, and with that it hits 53c idle, so I raised the idle fan speed to 12% and now it sits at around 48-50c idle. My old 4850x2 used to run at 46c idle... Is this an ok idle temperature?

Yes its fine pretty good for a dual to be honest. They probably changed teh bios at some point to make the fan run slower and the card quieter.
