yeah, something's not right there
either your temperature monitor is wrong, or your heatsink isn't making that great contact
have you got arctic silver 5?

what are your load temps?
(you can use ATI Tool artifact scanning, then look at the temperatures)
You shouldn't start worrying until you hit 90....

As far as I know this volt mod works on my EVGA 7900 GS. I set the core to 1.55v and got an oc from 450 to 690. When I get better cooling will aim higher!
