PSU OCZ 550W, Intel Core i5 2500k, 16mb RAM, Asrock H67M motherboard. This card is NOT overclocked in any way. Problem, even with the fan operating at 100% (using MSI Afterburner) many games cause the GPU temperature to hit 97 degrees centigrade within 10 minutes. The GPU temp only reduces when the game is exited. Far Cry 3 and Dead Island are 2 examples of where this happens

Does your case have adequate cooling? Also see if your GPU has dust on the fans and heatsink as this can increase temp.

Will have a look at case cooling fan. The card is supposed to deal with dust (reverse spin on startup) but will check this as well, thanks.
