I don't think ambients have gone up enough to constitute a full 10C difference. It's not scalding hot in here, and it was never freezing cold.

My first thought was that the heatsink could be loose or something, so I may try that, but I'm a little hesitant to mess with it just because I've never taken apart a card before. Anything important I need to know?

EDIT: My idle temps are now up to 40C after playing Crysis 2 for about an hour. I undervolted to 1.037 and still running at factory clocks (950/1900)...

has to be your ambient, unless youve made other changes to your rig. Dust the heatsink with a can of compressed air. Try using a higher quality tim, and when reseating the heatsink screw it on as tight as you can. The factory never tightens the screws all the way.

Maybe the fan profiles changed?
Use Afterburner to set a custom fan profile...
Or the cards turning the fan down too fast and not cooling off properly?

Fan profile is bold. It runs at 85% at 80C, and I have it set to run at 50% at temps below 40C. I've had this card for two weeks, so it just seems odd. I tightened the screws when I reseated the heatsink, and I added another exhaust fan in my case. I suppose it could be ambients, but I'd be surprised to see my temps hitting the high 20's idle like when I first got it. I guess it's not really a problem until I start seeing 95C temps while gaming, etc, but what I originally saw led me to believe that it was worth the extra money to grab an aftermarket cooler, and now it's running hot :x idk.

Idle temps don't matter, just load...

Just so you know, temp sensors are less accurate the further away from 100'c you are.
Maybe its an anomaly, maybe the extra voltage is staying applied 24/7 not clocking it back down in 2D?

Im interested in this card for my new gaming rig, hows it works lately? I've searched on forums about 560 ti hawk and many people got heat and noise problems, *feeling disappointed*.
