I understand your concern, though. Some like to pamper their hardware.
"Pamper my hardware?" That honestly made me chuckle.

Yeah, I like to keep my hardware as cool as possible- it will prolong the component's life. The hotter it runs, the more stress it is put under physically, meaning the shorter its life will be (theoreticly).

I know it'd be fine even if it were running at 60*C. But something else that concerns me is that I know the ambient temp in my case is going to rise some once I put my second GTS back in here. As such, if I can get it to just barely reach 50*C under load, I know I wont break 60*C ever with both GTS in. That's my logic anyways. Yet to actually put it to the test.
