Hello,

How many screens are connected to the videocard? If there's 2 monitors connected it's still a bit high. If it's not the case, how is your airflow in your system? I suspect almost no airflow.

Regards.

Dusty? Try cleaning it if you havent already mate, dust plays havoc with temps.

Idle temps dont matter much, check what it gets to on load, its fan is only at 30% right now so it probably wont go much above about 75C under load which is fine. If you want to lower your idle temp increase your fan speed a bit, 40% should drop your idle temps by a few C.
