I just rebuilt my computer, win7 64 bit with all of the updates. Asus M5A97 mobo, PNY Geforce GTX 750ti, latest drivers, 16 gigs Corsair Dominator Ram. When I installed the newest version of Folding@Home the temperature on my video card when folding runs 153 to 158 degrees F. I took the side off the computer and am running a fan to blow extra air over to try and keep it cool. Is this temp to high? I don't want to burn out my new card.

158F is 70C. That's a little on the warm side, but not critical. NVIDIA shows the max temp for reference design as 95C. http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-750-ti/specifications

70C doing a load is normal, so yes, there's nothing to worry about.

Thank you both, I was more than a little worried about it.
