If you have been playing Crysis 3 theres a bug with it where for whatever reason it keeps your card stressed after you close it, check processes for it. Also it could just be the stupid Windows performance test telling you your hardware isn't up to snuff and you need to turn off Aero, its complete crap.

Try rebooting your system, it should fix the problem. Otherwise, you could also try going into the NVIDIA Control Panel and resetting to default settings.
