You can get an aftermarket copper cooler, but if it's still under factory warranty, I would leave it alone. Try an extra case fan or leaving the side panel off for awhile, and see if that helps. You will void your warranty changing the heatsink on your expensive video card, so keep that in mind before doing anything. A few have lifetime warranties if you registered them online.

that is the reason why i dont buy evga cards or any reference cards unless they are super cheap

go get a RMA. GPU is not supposed to run that hot. 70c is acceptable
