Hi everyone. I'm new at this so I really need help. I bought and installed a sapphire radeon 5770 on my computer. I play star wars the old republic con high settings and other games and my CCC marks around 65-72 C temperature. I know it's high but it's not damaging. I would love to run a bit more cooler though. Do you guys recommend manually adjusting the fan speed? If so, would it be dangerous?

I use MSI Afterburner on my 5770 crossfire setup. You can set up a manual "graph" of temp v fan speed. I have mine set so fans are at 100% at 70C. Noisy, but stops my cards melting... And upping fan speed wont damage anything. They're designed to run at whatever speed.
So as long as it's not a bother to you those temps are fine and well within spec for a GPU of this class so I would keep it on default auto fan speed.
