Something isn't right. Although the thermal threshold may be 117 that's almost 250°F. Right now it's amazingly hot, whether your heatsink fell off or a fan isn't spinning. I really suggest shutting down and making sure your heatsink is seated properly and the fan is spinning and clean that sucker.

Shut down your computer, take the card out, and blast it with canned air.... your heatsink might be clogged with dust

No that's still really hot haha. Like XFreeRollerX said, shut down and clean it out real quick with some canned air. At constant temps like that you might risk damaging it if that's idle at 85°C.

Yeah, we need to see a pic of the inside of your case. I predict that there's cables everywhere (restricting airflow), dust is clogged in the GPU cooler, the cooler was taken off and thermal paste wasn't reapplied, etc.
