I've recently overclocked my GTX 660M on my G55VW-DS71 with +135/+500 and when I run 3DMark Vantage, I get max temperatures around 77 C. Is this normal?

Those temps are fine and well within the normal range.

Ah, are you 100% sure? I'm a bit paranoid since I've read somewhere on this forum to keep it away from 80C.

Yea, you are nowhere near thermal shutdown, not at a gpu throttling point, and low enough that you won't be significantly harming other components. I wouldn't even bother with a respaste (did one on the 660m in my G46 and max temps went from ~83 to ~79).

Point being, yeah, those temps are normal. If you really want them lower, lose the oc or try repasting and replacing the fans. Personally, looks good to me as is.
