Default How hot is too hot for my GPU?

I've got my new computer built, and i was wondering how hot i should let my GPU get before it's dangerous. When i first tested it with ATI tools(i have an x850xt) it got to almost 90 very quick, but that was with fan speed set to 5%. Ive altered the fan speed to 100% above like 75C. Is that too high?

Yeah it was at like 87 under load prior to me manually adjusting the fan settings, it was set permanetly to 5%, probobly because it's loud at 100. But im gonna run some more tests, i have it set to hit 100% if it gets over 75.

AS5 and a VF900 should bring you down by 12-20 degrees.

I just put those on my 7900 last night and it dropped my temps by 25C

Stock- 40C idle/60C load
Zalman- 28C idle/ 35C load
