so let me get this. You are running a crap psu and are getting 70C under load on the gpu?
What kind of case is this in? You could have poor airflow. Judging by the psu I bet its in the case it came with which is either old or a cheap oem case. If you have bad airflow, which both of those would cause, your temps will be high. A fan can only cool well if you give it cool air.
If you solve the airflow and psu issues then there should be no need to underlcock the card.
I don't what case it is, its stock. It probably does have bad airflow, and with 1 fan which is an exhaust fan, theres not much I'm getting cooled. My CPU fan doesn't run high, but my CPU is fine. Obviously my GPU fan isn't good. Yes the PSU is crap and i'm going to be getting a new one soon. For now my problem is solved so no need to post here anymore. I know what i need to get and for now, my GPU is running decent enough until i can get a new PSU and better fans, maybe even a new case. I do want to overclock my GPU, but I can't. I NEED it underclocked to try and save the temps from going insanely high. Sorry about the triple post too, didn't know the command for quotes. Not much of a forumer, but needed help with this and I guess theres not much I can do until taxes, so leave it at that. Honestly, i wouldn't even know a good setup for air flow :/ not much on computers besides knowing a few things about them, I'm not a tech and I never really studied computers. If i tried to overclock my card i'd probably fry it without help lol. If you want to tell me something just message me =) this thread is good as done now because I see what I need know.

Not done... the fans are at max, I already had help with that on the first post.... read.
