Download latest drivers, set aperature size to 64mb or 128. The heat could be an issue but i dont believe CSS would cause it to heat up that much. Last thing would be card is bad.

Purchase an aftermarket cooling kit. There are lots of overclockin sites/stores that will offer the correct cooling. It comes down to what you prefer really. You can go liquid cooling for the whole pc and use water blocks or you could stay with air and get an arctic cooling or other manufacturers cooling.

Personally I have arctic cooling and it is serving me really well. Tricky and fiddly to put together but sooooooooo worth it.
