It would be great to lock framerate. Less heat = better.

Also give us more video options! :)

Yeah. An option like "MaxFPS" (just limit FPS). V-sync already do that, but it costs some performance.

What temps are you guys seeing when playing? I've got 55C but my fan profile in Afterburner is set to hit 75% speed by then, it's the cards max speed. GTX560Ti.
I'd like it to run a little cooler too, if it were posible.

It depends. My GPU (GTX460) got around 50C (sometimes 55C, on Skyrim for example). The driver set the speed to 30% - 35%. It's not very hot for a GPU. Four years ago, I had a GPU with passive cooler, and it was running around 105C and I used it two years.

my GPU(ATI HD4870) is around 65°C ‘cold’ when idle(yeah) and heats up to 70-72°C.
since I cleaned the fan and replaced the termal material, the fan is silent again(runs at 20% idle, 25% full load)
===
btw. now it is 5°C colder than when I bought it...
