Actually he doesn't even need to keep it under 90*C most will be good into the high 90s without artifacts. Make sure that you turn the fan up to 100% in ATI tool.

I say cooler is better. Just cause a gpu CAN handle 90c, doesnt mean you should let it.

Option 1:
Remove the heatsink and apply some AS5 in place of the stock paste. Then clean the heatsink while its off. If you really wanna go nuts, lapp it too. Then put it all back together, and set the fan to 100% in atitool. This should lower the temps a bit.

Option 2:
Buy a vf-900....lol

No, that GPU can handle 100*C plus. Mid 90s is in the safe range. I have had my card running for hours at 98*C.
