if it passes 100c

graphics cards can get much hotter, safely, than a cpu can.

Stop when it gets to 100°C.

That is, unless you have a PNY 9400GT, in which case you should just not use that card because the fan will melt at ambient temperatures present in places such as Alaska.

But you don't have a PNY 9400GT, so go forth and be merry.
