I don't know much about gpu temps, or actually temps in general, but i would have thought a 30-40 idle temp would be better all around.

I don't notice a difference in noise from 20% to 50%, why'd ya set yours so low? Does it save power?
The R770 GPU's are designed to idle at temps of 60C-80C, and load at 90C-110C. It sounds hot and bad, but the chips can take it .

Thats not to say of course, that you shouldn't keep temps down, as it will extend their lives, but 50C idle, and 60C load really is nothing for the chips.
