It's been half a year now since I own an AMD R7 240 (1gb GDDR5). It's perfect! Cheap, but packs a punch! Chews on anything I trow at it on playable framerates on 1440x900 and medium to high graphics settings. The card runs on stock frequencies, no overclocks. The only thing I'm starting to worry about is the temperatures, as the summer is only starting to heat up. The card gets up to ~70 degrees Celsius while gaming. Is this fine under full load? What is the temperature I should start to worry about, that could reduce the cards lifespan?  Whats the MAX temperature for this specific card?
