Actually i found someone on similar forum that said he had same issue with witcher 2. I only cleaned gpu by cleaning fan.

He told me to remove screwed and take it apart blow all dust and add new thermal paste.

He said his temp dropped 15-20 celsius .

Heatsink is the cooler that is attached to your GPU core.
TIM=thermal interface material, or thermal paste.

Im kind of worried to do it.

Any one have good video guide or some guide on how take a gtx 285 apart and put thermal paste on.

I never installed a gpu let alone apply this stuff.

follow the first part of this one to remove the heatsink (go up to where he removes the fan power plug, you do not need to remove this plug, just flip the heatsink up and leave it plugged in):


and the last part of this one (starts at 2:00) to reapply the TIM:
then just work backwards to put the heatsink back on

just be very careful with it, dont force anything if it seems stuck, take a look and see if maybe you forgot a screw or something like that. ground yourself before starting... other than that, you should be fine. you can use any thermal grease you want, in the 2nd video they use artic silver which is universally regarded to be one of the best to use price/performance wise.
