Default Re: Graphics card overheating. Will it affect my other parts?

When you blew the dust out, did you remove the card? On my old X1950XT, which used a similar cooler, the dust would build up at the back of the card like a wall. Once that happened it would run 80-90C, but once cleaned it didn't go over 60C until the dust built up again.

Use Rivatuner to set fan speed to fixed 100%. Those were pretty nice stock coolers, it shouldn't be getting that hot.
