I have old (over a year) 8800gt in antec 900 case.
I have core i3 5?0 and (I think) 450Watt PSU.
Win 7 ultimate 64bit.

Using rivatuner and windows gadget to see the temperature:
idle: video card 60
max load: video card up to 92 (yikes) (playing Borderlands on 1920x1080).

No BSoD or crashes though.
Air coming out of the case is not hot.
Case has 3 out of 5 fans used/enabled.

I already cleaned the entire computer (inside) with canned air.
What should I do?

You can turn up the fan manually with Riva tuner/Precision, but that's not horrible temps for a stock 8800GT. It technically should be able to handle up to 105C.

If you want to, you could take of the heatsink, clean and reapply the TIM. But that voids your warranty for most cards (if you still has it) and you could damage your card..
