Usually with any of todays GPUs, you're good to go until you get around 90C but I personally try to stay under 80C.

im seeing the max temp being about 100*c

i would stay under 75 if possible and make sure your voltages are as low as they can be for the given clock.

I have 1.29 on my reference Sapphire 6970 It runs 1015 MHz Core and 1450MHz Mem. Plus I run boinc on it 24/7, a distributed computing platform similar to folding@home. I have been running this clock for 4 months 24/7 with no problems. My max temps are 45 C with 74F ambient. Hope this helps.

Water cooling setup is in my sig

Can run 1GHz Core w/ 1.175v on my Lightning but my 24/7 is 1020MHz Core w/ 1.2v though.

I'd say as everyone else has stated 100C is what I'd aim to be below lol
