Okay, so my EVGA Geforce GTX 560Ti is hitting 90 degrees Celsius when playing Diablo 3.
How can I cool it down?
Is 90 degrees okay? o.o

No, it is not ok.

Is case airflow good?

If it is, it's a problem with the thermal paste.

Would it be a good idea to increase the "Fan speed." ?

Set your fan to a constant 70%, see if this helps ;) 

That did the trick!
Is there anyway I can have it setup on auto so that when I'm playing Diablo, it goes up to 70% and when I get off it goes back to normal?
Wouldn't want it running on 70% all day! :??:

Is 70% loud?

It is a bit loud, I just don't see the point in keeping a constant 70 when the comp isn't doing much once I'm off Diablo?
Would keeping a constant 70% just be a good idea?
Also, will it affect the fan's lifespan, etc?

You can setup a custom fan profile if you wish...

Are you using MSI afterburner?

How do I setup the custom fan profile?
Also, does the MSI Afterburner work with EVGA? ._.

EVGA has a program on there website called EVGA precision. You can use it to overclock, adjust voltages and also FAN speeds.

Use some compressed air to clean the GPU heatsink so the fan can effectively move heat away. Also, no brainer, try keep wires from blocking airflow and clean case fans. I wouldn't see 70% fan speed as a permanent solution!
