Question 8800GT Superclocked fan %'s?

what should i change my fan speeds to in rivatuner? its at 29% duty cycle, 53c idle, i bumped it to 45% and its at 50c at the moment. Is that ok? does making it faster ruin the card?

Making it faster keeps the card cooler, thereby lengthening its life. I have mine set at 70% since anymore makes too much noise.

Just go as high as you can tolerate. The fan shouldn't get damaged because its designed to go that high. Keep in mind that it will collect more dust so expect to clean the fan/cooler more often.

I remember i was getting artifacts with my old 6800gs and it turned out to be all of the dust that collected in the fan. Slowing down airflow/fan speed and rising my temps by alot. Scared the mess out of me.

There is a guide somewhere around here that can set your fan speed based on your temperature.... hold on

I have mine set so when its below 65C its at 60% fan speed, and when its at 65C its at 80% and when its over 75C its at 100%

Yeah, I have mine setup to auto adjust with Rivatuner. Seeing as automatic feature with the driver doesn't seem to work at all, it's the only way that I know of to make the automatic feature actually work.
