With 24xAA set on Oblivion and highest settings, with my fans spinning at 40% on both cards, they never hit 60C. They're not in danger by setting a hard-stop at 40%.

Just monitor your temps, and you'll be fine. All you have to do is bring your ATI Overdrive up quickly after exiting a game to check them.
