Default Question with my new GTX280

Just picked one up, wow what a difference. I went from a 8800 GTX and can say its made a huge difference across the board.

Anyways, I never here the fan kick in. I can set it with RivaTuner,idle it sits around 67-70 load it goes up to 79-82.

What is a reasonable speed to manually set the fan to?

Thanks in advanced

gtx 280 is the first card that i left it at auto, it is about 45-52 at idle and 82 max on OC. don't see a point in messing with it
