Hey guys, I have an MSI GTX 670 OC which runs at high temperatures. At idle it runs at 43 degrees but under load in games such as battlefield, Saints Row the Third, ARMA II and Metro 2033 it can get up to 87 degrees. This is a reference card by the way.

I have tried reapplying thermal paste numerous amounts of times but that never made any difference to the temps. I was using CoolerMaster Paste in a green syringe. The BF3 setting are maxed out with MSAA disabled, I get a solid 60 fps, and a few drops.
Is there anything I can do to fix the temperature. I am not overclocking by the way.

i5 3570k 3.7GHz
12GB DDR3 Kingston Ram
MSI GTX 670 OC
MSI Z68MA-G45
Corsair Force SSD


The CPU idles at around 40-45 degrees and gets to 60-70 under load.

The temps at idle seem a little high but both hi and low temps seem to be in the safe range.... my 680 maxes at 65 when gaming -- idles in the 30's ---- I have a reference evga --- the evga utility allows you to control the fan speed curve ....
by having the fan kick in from 40% at 35 degrees to a curve i set so that the fan is maxed at 60 i was able to get the temps under control
