Those temperatures are wayy high. Make sure your video card isnt overclocked more than it should be. Also look on your video card if any screws or bolts came loose that could make the heatsink/fan not be in contact with the gpu.

dude! 125c ! u only need 100c to boil water. 160c is like the temp of a fire. im suprised the GFX PCB hasnt melted yet! Might be that the temp sensor on the card is faulty, if it isnt well..... u might aswell go and buy ur self a new card cause IC's only have a operating temp of -25c to 95c. so i bet there are a few million transitors that are expriencing the firey shores of ****!
