you should also look into undervolting your video card

i have mine set @ .925v @ stock and 1.15v for my overclock (756/1512/1200)

idles 37 and load is around 50c-55c w/ fan speed around 45% (depending on game)
Ah I wasn't aware of evga precision, I installed it and now im able to manually adjust fan speeds, at 60% the max temp is 63C and idle temp dropped to 44C, I wanted to try the EVGA Voltage tuner program but it says not compatible with 182x drivers (yet), Anyhow Thanks for the info!
