Graphics Card Crashing?

I built a computer a while ago, I can play games and maintain a temp around 40-50 degrees Celsius. But on games such as Battlefield 3 (I run on Ultra settings) my graphics card will lurch to 55-60 degrees Celsius. Ultimately the game will crash, though I've never blue-screened, the game will just stop responding. This problem occurs after about 15 minutes of gameplay.

Rig:

CPU: Intel i5-3570k Ivy Bridge processor (3.4Ghz)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz sticks
GPU: GeForce GTX 670 FTW (For the Win Edition) Superclocked (Factory overclock)
PSU: Corsair CX750 watt
Case: CM Storm Scout Gaming Case
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V

For all I know, it could be something else causing the issues. All GPU intensive games tend to have issues, if I turn the settings down the heat will stay around 55 degrees Celsius. But in the end, all games cash around 60, and I know that a GPU can go around 80 without a problem. What I want to know is what is causing my crashing and if I can fix it (I do know the airflow in the case is a little bad)

Good job! You wasted your time. You just said that the airflow in your case was a little bad. Fix it. Then come back.

If you're going to be rude and post useless junk then don't post at all. If you read his post, his temps are fine so airflow is fine. The storm scout has good airflow.

If you are using the 320.49 drivers, use the 314.22. Afaik there are still issues with any of the 320 drivers.

Look at the bottom of the post.

He thinks the case has bad airflow but the storm scout is actually good. Even if he didn't manage his cables it's still fine. He also posts temps, 60C is not an issue at all. If airflow was really an issue he'd be much hotter. The 670 usually goes to 70C in bf3 ultra so he's running into an issue beforehand.

Yes, when playing the temperature slowly rises. I routinely tab-out to check the temp on EVGA Precision (GPU Temp monitoring program, which I have settings for full fan speed on anything above 45 degrees Celsius) and when I tab-out, the temp will sometimes drop 5 degrees in that second. A few days ago I was playing and a texture glitch came up, I don't know if it was the heat of the card (being 60 degrees that couldn't make sense) or the drivers
