Did you ever take the cooler off and re-install it or have someone else do it for you? If not I would RMA it because that's just way too hot.

Hm, Check the dust then, how fast is it spinning? Does the fan/cooler seem to be falling off the card?

i would reseat the fan with some new thermal paste and clean the old stuff. it should load in the high 60's low 70's without overclock, not idle in the 60's.

yeah definatley needs new thermal paste or at least reseeated.

yeah that may be good, I have the same card and I overclocked and am getting 52 C idle and around 70 C load. Definately get some new paste for that.

oh gosh...u could probably fry and egg on that thing! mine idles at around 43c. instead of buying an aftermarket cooler, i would invest in some AS5 and apply, then reseat the cooler. there is no need to underclock your video card. seems like a waste if you were to do that.
