Wasn't overclocked ^^;

I'll clean the heatsink out but temps have been like that since the day I brought it home.

Thanks for the help. An aftermarket cooler is much cheaper than a new video card hah.

Thanks again

The core it self may be able to withstand those temps for a long time, but what about the solder joints? We all know what happened to a lot of consoles due to the extreme heat they was generating. It could even be something else such as a voltage regulator causing the issue, we saw someone not too long ago, with a GPU that wasn't overheating, but his VRM was, and it was enough that it couldn't get enough power to the GPU.
