Check your airflow and the cooler on the card for dust and lint before you do that. They will charge you if it only needs cleaning.

Well overclock and overheating can go hand in hand and if temps are fine at the cards std clock then they will not accept RMA.

It is still within operation limits which is somewhere in the high 90's. Cleaning it could solve the problem.

That's not a bad card it comes down to gpu lottery some cards will oc better then others even if same model.The temps are quite toasty though so i agree with rolli59.

How big is your case? If your overclocking you will need to create an aggressive fan curve to keep temps down, a Ghz card should be able to hit 1200mhz core with little effort.
