Okay so i recently just built my first computer after the holidays and haven't had any problems at all. I am new to this computer stuff and have much to learn. What i am concerned about is while playing far cry 3 (very high) for 7 hours straight the my gpu (evga 560 ti fpb) has only reached a temperature of 62 the entire time. after i closed out of the game it only took the gpu 10-15mins to cool back down to 32C. where i keep my computer is 68F. i just want to make sure that this isnt bad for the gpu itself because id prefer to have it last as long as possible.

For the GPU and CPU the cooler the better. Well going sub ambient causes condensation but you need a phase change cooling unit for that to be possible.

no that's normal--at least for my gtx 680.

That's not strictly true. Rapid changes in temperature aren't good. Still, in this case it's normal.

Well if things are kept cool then there is no rapid change in the temperature. So yes cooler is better. Flash freezing hardware with LN2 is an extreme scenario. Even with slush bucket cooling you don't get "rapid" changes in temperature unless you run insane voltages and do suicide benchmarking.

When talking plus ambient cooling, lower temperatures mean less heat expansion and that in turn mean less mechanical stress on the chip.

usually never above 60 at stock--here's one with a little overclock (stock voltage)
