As for the temperature, if that is the idle temp then it is OK. Also depends on how clean the fan and heatsink on the card are and what kind of aiflow there is through the case. The important temperature to watch for is what it gets up to when there is a load on the card from a game or something.
I see, and ah, I have two brand new fans on my table right here. So if it's going to like 80C (which I don't think is going to happen) then i'll install them.

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: x64 (SP1)


I booted up my computer, and immediately ran the SpeedFan. The GPU was on like 41-42C and I could just watch it go up all the way to 51-54C .. Is it normal that it's developing the temperature that fast?
Or does it depends on how cold/warm the room is when the computer is on shutdown?

Yes it is normal for it to go up like that after turning the computer on. It goes from whatever the room temperature is up to its idle operating temperature.

Also stop worrying about the idle temp, which is OK. The temperature to worry about is what it gets to when you play a game or something.
