It's time to change thermal compund and clean your cooler.

Best way to clean the card, first drop it from a high window to blow off any dust, then remove the heatsink with a hammer or rock. Forget wasting cash on thermal paste because good old butter or lard is great substitute. When done dip the card in a bath of salt water and reinstall while wet......SERIOUSLY THOUGH APRIL FOOLS LOL, DO NOT DO ANY OF THAT, NO SERIOUSLY DONT.

As Feldmarschall said clean the heatsink remove it and put on new thermal paste :)

Hi,

There are screws on back of your video card. You need to disconnect fan, unscreew all screews and remove heatsink.

Fore more detailed guide take a look at this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XX-8cC3PNg4
Altough i don't like how he spreads compund. Best result's are when you just leave a dot or thin line on GPU and let heatsink pressure and temp do the rest, in that case it will be more euqally spread across GPU. But even with his way you'll get temp drop.
Best regards.
