55C is about the safe limit for 24/7 usage. What speeds and voltages are you runnig at? No damage ought to be done at that temps though.

DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
2GB Kingston Hyper-X (2-3-2-6)
TT Big Typhoon
eVGA 7900GT KO Superclocked (650/1650)

It hasnt hit 55c yet but it stays at 54c during benchmarks so i just assume some time it will hit 55c

Theres a program i have and it says TCase Maximum - 57c
i hope this isnt the die temp.
