70c is fine no worries, your card can run safely in the low 80c range.

A bad or unstable overclock can result in worst performance than stock so that's also nothing to worry about. You just have to test and find the sweet spot. You most likely went a little to far with one or more of your settings and the card was unstable so it took a performance hit as a result.

Ah, ok thank you very much. But can this hurt the graphics card? i don't think it was running too hot, never went above 70 Celsius.

It won't hurt it at that temperature, but can suffer from performance loss if it's unstable, not to mention the inevitable system crash.
