The GTX 280 is notoriously bad, and only idles at 45 for me, and my airflow is not hugely good.
And yes. If that is 55 Celsius it's running high for idle temps. My GTX 560 idle's at 26 - 28c. And under full load never goes above 60c. I have EVGA Precision running with a auto profile when browsing etc. And a 50% fan speed profile when in 3D applications. My old GTX 260 used to only idle at 46c.
By the way as well. When i first got this GTX 560 i tried the latest Nvidia drivers (301.42). They have so many bugs it seems for the 5xx series cards. My card was running 20 degrees higher than with the driver's i am now running, which are 285.62.
So Szat, if you are on the latest drivers maybe try a rollback to the one's i mentioned above. Make sure to use "Driver Sweeper" in safe mode though after uninstalling old drivers.
