Default Nividia GTX 280 Idle Temp?

Hey guys

I recently configured a new pc but i used a normal case and nothing extreme

I have a GTX 280 installed and while the system is IDLE , its temp is around 65 - 70oC

Is this ok or should it be lower?

What are the temps under load? High end cards usually get really hot

Most High End cards run that hot... and are designed to last those temps

You could try manually increasing the fan speed in nvidia control panel although those temps aren't that bad.
