lately ive noticed a increase of heat comming from my graphics card when using my pc, before i use to beable to play games such as world of warcraft and guild wars 2 with a steady temperture of 80°C but now i am barely able to run any of those games without my graphics temp reatching behond 90°C ( max ive noticed it at was 95°C ). i dont understand why my graphics is producing so must heat now, i run the games on medium / high settings, and even when im not in any games my graphics card is sitting between 50 - 65°C. it seems to me that all of a sudden its overheating.

there is no dust in the fans, ive had the graphics card for about 2 years and have the latest drivers for the card.

In Overdrive there is a fan setting. Enable manual control and set slider to about 60%. Make a preset for that setting and name it 'games'. Then when you want to play a game, choose that preset from the icon in your taskbar. See if 60% fans cools it down. Use GPU-Z to test temperatures while gaming.
