EVGA Superclocked GTX 770 only getting 30 fps max on most games

I have the EVGA Superclocked Gtx 770 2gb with ACX cooling and it is always running pretty hot as well as not nearly living up to my expectations. I was checking my fps in most games that I should run fine on maxed out settings but i seem to be stopped at 30fps, even Minecraft seems to skip a frame or two here and there. I saw someone else with an identical card getting nearly 80fps more than me on the same settings. As for the card running hot, it is idle at 32 degrees celsius but then really starts cooking at anywhere between 50 and 70 degrees celsius. Now this is a new card as I am rather new to the whole PC building scene as well as these forums but I'd really appreciate some help.

My PC
i7-4770k
EVGA Superclocked GTX770 with ACX Cooling
16gb RAM
Windows 8.1
All drivers are up to date and I have no Bitcoin virus.

Is it literally never going over 30fps? if so its probably capped at that.
inside your games, disable an option called vsync, which caps your FPS
go to the nvidia control panel and see if you somehow have vsync enabled there( under 3d settings), disable that too.

and those are not hot temps, quite normal.

Thank you so much for your help, yes it was never going over 30 but now it is going just fine. Also, are there any other ways to increase my FPS besides of course overclocking? I know I didn't include this in my initial question but you seem to know your stuff, I'm assuming it's just drivers but is there any particular reason as to why my GPU would be crashing from sitting at the desktop?
