I just think I'm getting crappy airflow which is making my stock cooler even less efficient than it normally would be. I'm currently trying to remedy this problem :-).

I'm going to see if a 10 dollar solution will fix the problem first. Just gonna put a front fan in my case, I actually don't have one because I had never needed one in the past. I have read that better airflow actually will cool down this specific card considerably.
