my gpu started throttling at 85C so i changed the fan settings in msi AB. i thought i would test the card out at overclocking slightly from 850mhz to 900mhz and then the temps maxed at 70C and started throttling -300mhz at 70C. can anyone explain this?

Lots of cards will throttle sooner if they have been overclocked. Even at full load you really shouldn't be looking at temperatures in the 80+ range.
