I have no clue, but I do think that they may need to know what Make/Model GFX card it is.

Depends on the model I suppose. My old 7600GT would start having problems around 75C, but 70 or lower was fine.

ATiTool will stress your card\monitor temps at the same time.

newer cards seem to be able to take MUCH, MUCH more heat. my 8800GTS's throttle down temp is a staggering 110c! you could boil water on the heatsink at that temp!

My 8800GT can take 100c so I think you'd be fine to OC a bit. Is it the GECUBE model with the dual slot cooler or just the single slot?
