It turns out to be my monitor, and i have a second one now jeeeez... I sweat at night in my sleep if they dont auto turn off -_-.

Edit: also OP do you have custom fan profiles? I set my fans slightly higher at idle speeds, around 37% or so and it idles my GPU around 23c-25c so the heat coming out does not warm up that area where the case is.

I just bought some fans and put them in good spots for air flow along with on blowing right into my gtx465. Fans about 2 inch from my card and it help alot.
plus a fan on the top of your case pulling heat out.

get an aftermarket cooler.. unless you don't want to void the warranty! then you may pick the HD6870 TwinFrozr II or gigabyte's windforce 3X..picked the 6950 TFII and never went over 65c while gaming though my card is somewhat defected and going to RMA soon for replacement!
