Windows 7: GTX 970 overheat

What percent should I turn my fan speed up to when the temp hits 60C above. Is it safe to turn the fan speed up to 100% when gaming?

If you use a tool like MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision X and most of the other tools, you can set a fan profile that will increase the fan speed as the temp increases. Are you sure you have sufficient air flow in your case? Intake fans to bring in cool air will help a lot. The fans on your card use the air inside your case to keep itself cool. If that is hot air, it can't cool very well.

Everyone has gave you great advice, more airflow helps. Your temps in the 60's are fine. As long as you stay below 79 while gaming you are safe. The GPU is actually safe for higher temps but it is best to keep them down. Here is an example of a fan curve for you
