Default How hot is too hot for a GT560?

How hot is too hot for an MSI N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC?
I Know the regular card has a maximum operating temperature of 99C , but I have looked before and couldn't find what the max temps for my GPU is. does anybody know or can someone find it for me?

http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N560GTX-Twin-Frozr-II-OC.html#?div=Overview

its a better than average graphics card heat wise, it has special capacitors and has special heatpipes etc. It says 70C under full load, what is around what i get give or take 3C. Anyway I was bored and decided to OC my CPU again just because I could, and I had also changed my RAM to the proper timings.
Here is what I am doing right now, well for about the past 45 min that I have been on my PC.

99c is thermal limit for all GTX 560 cores regardless of brand or model. I would use GPU-Z to monitor your temps as it is built specifically for GPUs. 70c seems about right if you are OCd.

Not CPU-Z, it's GPU-Z ..."G" as in GTX 560

yeah I have that also.
ANYWAY I was OCing my NB speed to 2600MHZ and it worked fine till I tried to start up my PC the next day, no post had to remove the graphic card and take out the battery and move the jumper... O well I am fine with the 2400MHZ speed that is overclocked in my normal profile, AMD said I should put it like that to work with my 1600MHZ DDR3 RAM

AMD is retarded if they literally told you that. You don't need your HT speed to be faster to run RAM. They are independent.
