it seems legit. you dont need to run the fan so fast.

if its on idle, its a bit hot. if its on load, its very cool. also, use furmark to stress test and use gpu-z to find the temps

A stress test is program that puts the GPU under a heavy load causing it to get hot. the easiest thing for you to do is to try running your most demanding game and watch the temps while playing. It should be safe around 80 degrees C. If it starts getting to 85 C then stop playing and let it cool down a bit then back off your OC untill you can keep it to around 80 C while gaming.
