I think your safe up to 105 on a 580 but not furmark won't really hurt anything unless you are overvolting the card.

When using programs like Furmark, it's best to keep the fan at 100%. However, if you're already using 100% fan speed and still getting 90°C, then tell me because I will have a question to ask.

I have set auto fan control in evga precision, so when furmark more stressed my card fan speed automatically go higher

Does it get to 100%? Most likely not. I would manually set it to 100% when your running Furmark.

You can run it if you really want to, but there isn't any point to it. Personally, I use Kombustor, a program bundled with MSI Afterburner. It's just about the same as Furmark, but it isn't as bad about putting an insane temp on your GPU. I run it for 10-15 minutes, and call it good. After that, I use the F@H GPU client for a day or so, and check for EUE's (Early Unit End). If a GPU can run F@H for a day or 2 without an EUE, it's stable enough for any game. Doing it this way gives me just as much OC validation as Furmark, but it doesn't run the risk of cratering the GPU.

Have you tried setting it to max 100% in Afterburner?

I tried using an arctic cooling accelero S1 Rev 2 passive cooler on my 6870 but always shut down furmark when it got to 95C. I think furmark can be dangerous if you are using manual fan settings and let the card get too hot. But if you keep an eye on things you should be fine.

I know that modern cards should shut themselves down before real damage occurs but why push a card that far? 95C was as hot as I was comfortable going and I also saw small artifacts starting to appear so I knew it was approaching the limit.

If I leave my stock cooler on auto it never gets over 80C. The software seems to speed up the fan whenever it touches 81C.

no.

you'll find artfacting in real games in cases where furmark doesn't artifact.

there's really no point unless you just installed an aftermarket cooler and want to test it out. and if so, i would only run it for a few min tops.
