Im using a Zotac 460 1GB.

My temps are idling @ 42-44(afternoon) and 39 (most of the time at night).

It loads @ 55-65 after long hours of gaming. sometimes even hit 70.

Any advice here?

According to MSI Afterbuner. My specs are

Volt : 1012 (1.12)
Core :675
Shader : 1350
Mem : 1800
fan speed : 60.

Will re-applying the Thermal compound void the warranty?

They run near my GPU's.
35-45C is a good, low idle temp.
Anything below 75C load is real good.

When I put my core over 1000 I can easily hit 80C
.
In short, your temps are fine. Run it.

What's your ambient temp? I'm sitting around 31-32 idle and hit about 74-75 under Furmark with my custom AB fan profile, but yours is also external exhaust it looks like, which may result in higher temps, and if this is the card you have, it doesn't have the full-slot exhaust.

As for what is too hot? If you're hitting 80+ on load at stock clocks/voltages, that's a bit too warm (unless you locked the fan at 40% for stress testing). I think Fermi cards shut down at 105 or 106 or something.

As long as your regular loads are under ~95C your chip should be healthy (thermal ceiling on these cards is 104C). I prefer to see gaming loads much lower than that though, but just as a rule of thumb

You are too kind to me!
I said that, because I know that it is not hot...

Is it worth re-applying the thermal paste? To a MX-2 or something

It helped my EVGA SC EE model by quite a bit. It never hearts as long as it's done properly. Use just about anything except Arctic Silver 5
I recommend OCZ Freeze.
