Well you said the temps are 64C? That's nowhere near hot for a GPU....I think theres some other sort of problem.

Are you positive your PSU is up to the job?

Yea, check your temps. Is the cpu overclocked at all?

I use ASUS SmartDoctor, lets you customize at what temps the fan will rev up, Iv never had any heating problems since I started using it. Fan is nice and quiet at 40% speed when Idling at 50c and when I start gaming I have it set to jump up to 60% speed at 60c and 80% at 70c

Make sure your heatsink is seated properly. And apply some new thermal paste.
