Default Re: What is normal temps for GTX 260?

So it seems if I let the card adjust it's own fan speeds, it is a little weak. But I don't want to make it always runs fast(and loud). I need a way to tailor the stock controller settings and change the curve of fan speed vs temp. Any ideas?
Here's the Riva Tuner feature that I'm using, it works like a champ:

I idle around 44c and never go about 56c under full load.
I set the fan at 60% idle and the speed will automatically increase as the temp goes up.
My 9800GTX+ didn't have a fan controller, which is needed for this option to work.
