Is the 85 degrees at full load? 85 degrees is not an issue and should be fine under load. I would worry if you start to get close to 100c. To decrease the temps. increase airflow in your case. Is the fan on the card working properly - does it increase speed as it gets hot. Clean the dust out of the case(especially the dust that builds up on fan blades). You could also upgrade the cooling on the card, and sometimes just replacing the thermal paste on the GPU can lower temps.

Try a different hardware monitor to verify temps. As suggested you need good airflow. couple fans intake and couple fans exhaust. Does your case side panel offer fan location? Also, what case is this in? describe existing fan configuration

Is it 85 degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit? If it's 85F you're golden on idle. If you're 85C and it's idle there's a problem.

Download a software called MSI Afterburner. It will read the temps and you can adjust the fan speed.

i have a option for my case to install fans..............and 85 degrees Celcius is under load when playing BF3.......so is it obvious to get temperatures like that ?

That's pretty warm, not terrible, but not really great. What make/model of video card do you own? How is your cable management? Could you post pictures?

It could just be airflow in general.

i turned my settings into ULTRA and using MSI afterburn it utilized 99% GPU & gave me 40-50 FPS at 80 degrees max. BUT i had opened my case ......IS this good sign as far as temp. is concerned or should adjust the fan speed ???

Thats a little better. Just change the fan speed.

Several of Zotac's GTX 560 models come overvolted from the factory at something crazy like 1.1V. I know of several people who have had issues with overheating from this. Most of the problems are on Ti version of the card, but not all. Do you know how to check your voltage?

My gigabyte 560 ti soc runs at 1.5V ( 2.22A ) at load and reaches 69C in games after i added fans and did some cable management.
Before that it reached 75C.
I think more fans and better cable management might solve your issue.

Blowing the air in off course.

Cable management improves the airflow, tying them all together allows air to move more easily through your case.

Try to get as much cables as you can behind the mobo. ( in the space between the metal casing next to the mobo and the sidepanel )

I assume you have already 1 fan blowing air out so the best thing is to place the extra fan in front or better on the side, specially if it is at the same height as your gpu.

You don't have a fan on the back blowing air out ? If so, no wonder your temps are high.

If you really don't have one best thing is to put the new one at the back blowing the air out ( placed as high as possible ), even better to get two fans, one in and one out.

on the top i have my PSU's air blowing out... I have the fan option at the BACK but middle of the case and others on the side So i should first put the fan on the back panel ???? From OUtside or inside ???? But Also GPU blows air from there.. RIGHT???So should i go with back OR with Side Panels ?

Mmmm, i would put it on the side, blowing cold air in. If possible just below the gpu.

Yep Two fans for you. One in the back as exhaust and one on side panel as intake.

What case are you using anyway?

thanks for the advice this might be an old thread but it did the trick...im liquid cooled btw(all koolance system)...I just took out my gtx 680 which would overheat when under any type of load (idle temps would be at 30 which is not bad....??) and took the block off reapplied arctic silver 5 instead of the stuff koolance shipped which was probably not as near enough as I needed :sarcastic:  and reinstalled and voila worked like a charm! so for anyone else with this problem just reseat the cards cooling device and you should be good
