Video cards are okay if they run that hot

Your card can run up to around 125 degrees until it shuts down according to
Also, you could use this thread I made a while ago because I had the same question

Default Re: Would you recommend keeping gpu fan @ 100%

for my server computer's i turn the fan up to 100% beacuse i dont want it to overheat

1) HP LAPTOP (Turned 50-60% on Weekdays and On Sat,Sun its 100%
2) ACER DESKTOP. (100% Turned all Day 7 days a week)

I turn the Hp Laptop one on to 100% beacuse there are 6x more people connected to my server's than on normal weekdays! its wired!

and plus it lags a little bit so i have to turn it up.

So yea Depends

If its a Laptop then 35-60% MAX.
if its a Desktop Go up to 100% if you Wish.

Hope this Helped.
