Question 8800GTS temps???

I just got my new system yesterday here are the specs

Inno3D 8800GTS OC 640mb
Corsair HX-520 520W ATX Power Supply
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.40Ghz LGA775 CPU
Gigabyte Black 3D Aurora Full Tower Case
Asus P5B-E P965 LGA775 ATX M/B
Pioneer DVR-212 DVD-RW
And of course Gskill 2GB-HZ, PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) 4-4-4-12 Dual Channel

I am rather worried about the temps i am receiving from my Inno3d 8800GTS OC 640mb it sits at 55C idle and it can go to 75C using ati tool scanning for artifacts not changed for stock settings should i be worried about these temps? And i have the stock fan running at 100%.

PS would my specs be considered high perfomance

those temps seem normal to me, others with 8800's get 70c idle
those specs are consider high-performance
heres a same exact thread but answered


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

yeah don't be worriec about 55c idle, thats not really a big deal. 100c is considered the threshold if i recall correctly. you could add a few more fans to your case and get a couple that pull away air from the card though if it would make you feel better.

My gaming rig:
ASUS P6T | i7-920 D0 @ 4.0GHZ - 1.25v w/ H50
GTX 460/768MB (750/1500/2000) | 12GB Corsair DDR3-1600 @ (8-8-8-24)
2 x PS-100 32GB SSD Raid 0 | 4 x WD 750GB Raid 5 | Corsair 620HX
Asus 21.6" LCD (1080p) | LG 32" TV (1080p)
Logitech G15 | Logitech MX518 | Logitech MX1100 | Razer Mamba
