Windows 7: nvidia GTS240 running slightly hot

nvidia GTS240 running slightly hot

hi guys, i have a nvidia GTS240 (link) runs ok, no issues i am just worried about the idle temp, it sits around 63c which i feel is a little high

i cant find temps for this card on the net. it says can handle upto 105c (of course thats max before it has issues)

do you think its worth just for good practice to re-seat the OEM heatsink?

or am i just asking for more trouble? iknow it will still only possibly take a few dec off the card anyway, but would you do it with your own? or just step away from it?

If you feel confident that you know what your doing then why not try it and see if it helps? Also as I'm sure you know different cards run at different temps, so as long as it doesn't exceed the manufacturer's recommendations then you shouldnt have any problems
