I've got an MSI GTX 560 Ti TX Hawk, recently cleaned it out (not that it was very dirty) put some new cool paste (gold Coolermaster) and saw a little switch on the card saying it would either be on Normal mode or Cool mode or Performance mode.
I put it in Performance mode but now temps are close to 90°C when i play games. this cant be normal. Can it?
Just wondering since I'm in the dark with temperatures. I know these cards "could" go to 120°C but it wont be very wise for the life expectancy of the card.
So .. is it good for the card to do this? (I think not)

They've got a cutoff of 105 IIRC, eg meaning if you pass that temperature it will shutoff "slow down" to protect itself.
Also, could you link me what thermal paste you used as I'm interested in replacing the one in my 8800gtx

Is this safe for GPUs? IIRC you can cpu paste on gpu, but it has to be a non conducting one?
Edit: nvm, i'll start a separate thread for it thanks anyway.
