When my graphics card is idle the clock drops to 300 but the memory clock stays at 1050 so i get idle temps at ~60c but if I use my manual fan settings at about 45%-60% the temps are fine ~50c but is it bad to run my fan at a certain % for a long time?

is your card getting adequate airflow?
50-60c for idle is too hot.
what are your load temps?
and it is fine to run your fan at the same speed all the time.

No, running your fans at 50% is not a problem... if you can handle the noise that is.
Though the temperatures you're getting are a bit hot; nothing even close to dangerous mind you. You should be getting ~40*C idle temps.

Airflow should be fine I have my 2 intake fans on high but my load temps are ~70C+ while playing games like BF2BC, SC2

, I think its just because my memory speed won't drop when idling but it's not that big of a problem
