If you've got a sound card in the very top slot that's really close to your cards fan it's not going to get air flow at all dude...I've seen that leadtek heatsink and it's a pretty damn big copper heatsink so you should be getting better temps than that.

The 6800Ulta CAN be a good overclocker, but it's also sporting .1 higher voltage than the 6800GT's are inconjunction with the fact that it's already faster...

You should be able to hit like 430/1200+...I could max out at 430/1185 on my 6800GT, but that's with water cooling and my temp never exceeding like 52C

No doubt your card is hitting ATLEAST 85C...use rivatuners hardware monitor...go play a game for 30mins to an hour and see what it reports...you HAVE to use their monitor...if you try and exit out of the game and look at your nvidia temp monitor you won't see your real load temp...the GPU cools down 10C literally the instant it stops rendering frames.
