Default nVIDIA 6500 temps.

We got an ASUS Geforce 6500 video card for the recent build we did for someone.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121212
It does a great job for light gaming. We have it overclocked to 465/850.

I ran a program that puts a 3D model on the screen and loads the video card. I saw a maximum temperature of 78° C. Usually, after playing BF2, I go right into Everest and it says the temp is 71° C. Is this too hot for a card with these clock speeds and no fan? It never messes up during gaming or causes artifacts. I am thinking about replacing whatever thermal gel it might have now with some AS5.

I saw it get clear up in the 80s today. It definitely runs very warm!
