Nice overclock you got there! Even when throttleing! Your card should not throttle before 70C, did you try another 670 FTW user's BIOS? (e.g. the one posted on the original post). It might be a BIOS issue, with your particular card. Just remember to back up your current BIOS, in case it does not work.
It could also be a wrongly read temperature. Around 60C seems very cold for a 670 FTW. Most people are pushing upwards of the high 60's, and even into the 70's, did you try reading the temperatures with different software? (even though everything reads the same temperature, they might all be wrong)
