Default Average GTX 260 C216 temps?

After my card crashed twice when trying to play games (Crysis and Oblivion) I decided I should blow the dust out of my GTX 260. I opened up the case and touched the card, it was extremely hot to the touch; not enough to burn me but much hotter then my previous 4850. I turned off F@H and turned the fan up to 100% I'm getting a constant temp of 43C with no GPU intensive programs.

When I checked riva tuner the card was at 67C after I blew it out and it F@H was running for about 2 mins.

EDIT: with the fan at auto it's getting temps of 51C, with F@H running and a slight overclock I am getting temps of 77C.

Core i5 2500K - Asus P67 EVO - Gigabyte GTX 970 - 16GB DDR3 1600MHz - 250GB Samsung 840 EVO - Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Mid 2014 Retina MacBook Pro 13.3" - 2.6GHz core i5 - 16GB DDR3 1600MHz - 128GB - OS X El Capitan

i'm running the card in my sig, and my max temp even with the overclock is around 67c....thats with the fan at 70% though.......might try taking off the overclock when you game...that is more likely the cause

Mine run around low 60's when folding but the only OC I have on them is the shader. Oh and fan is set at 75%
