That temperature is normal, you can adjust the fan settings with a program like MSI Afterburner. You can set up a custom fan profile so it doesn't spin 90% at 70C. I would have it spin 90% around 85C.

Click settings and go to "Fan" tab. It will give you a graph where you set points for which speed at which temperatures. The best thing to do is have it start out around 30% @ 40C and move up exponentially to 100% @ 90C

It's stock settings in MSI Afterburner should be pretty good so check the box that says "Enable user defined software automatic fan control" and click okay. Then on the main screen make sure you click the "User Define" button next to the Fan Speed % bar.

OK i did that exactly like what u said but on the main screen at the fan bar the max speed is always 50% i tried to edit it to be 30% but it returns to 50 ?? i expected the fan speed in 40c goes down to 30% but nothing happened ??

Diud you click the button for User Defined? Does Nvidia Control Panel have some conflicting application that sets the fan speed for you? Check Nvidia Control Panel out.

If your fan gets up to 96% while playing:
1.) The cooler is not cooling efficiently
2.) It must sound like a leaf blower.

I assume you have a GTX 560 with a reference cooler.

I would HIGHLY recommend getting an after market GPU cooler like the ARCTIC COOLING ACCEL-TT II which is compatible with GTX 560s.

Your machine should be noticeably quieter and cooler. Most of the ones I have installed have been near silent.

Watch the video this guy made. Listen to his HD6870 in the beginning of the video versus the end. Also look at the results of how much the cooler dropped his temps. His Arctic Cooler is a slightly different model but they all cool well.

They are rather easy to install.

This way you won't have to fool with tweaking control panel and will get better results.

BTW...I just saw this review on newegg for the ARCTIC COOLING ACCEL-TT II I linked.

Check out this review from 4/1/2012:

Quote:
Pros: EVGA GTX 560 Ti @ stock 900 / 2106
FurMark with stock cooler and custom fan profile: 79 C. After Accelero Twin Turbo II install, same settings: 51 C.

Nosie level is lower than case fans with the Arctic Cooler which is worth the cost alone to me. It is wonderful not having to put on headphones or turn the volume up while gaming.

I think this is the result you are looking for.
