So does mine actually :/ but it used to hit 95c on stock clocks before the repaste so I thought, what the hell, and overclocked it to within an inch of what the power supply can handle.

but I recently stumbled across a thread about using a 3rd party app that will force it into the down clocked power state and ramp it back up when certain conditions are met like running specific exes or based on gpu usage. I set it based on gpu usage so I don't have to remember to add the exe to the list when ever I install a game
Actually, it doesn't use the GPU at all :/ it just runs on 3D clocks I suspect because of nVidia drivers being odd.
