    with furmark, bunch of 2014 games, is this considered normal?

    would this kind of heat damage hardware in the long run?

    You can use Macs Fan Control (software), and set a higher static fan speed (like 2300-2350rpm). That way the temperature will stay more stable.

    my retina iMac's GPU has been at 105 degrees consistently while playing games.
    don't worry about it :)

    Better get Applecare

    Those temps will cause short life. Desktop cards run much cooler and GPU is soldered to logic board on imac, so if it goes....
