Did you change your fan speed curve on accident perhaps? It could also be a build up of dust, you should check and clean it out. 80C I think is about average for a 660 under load, my friends will usually sit right around there, and he doesn't have any side intake fans or anything.

My dear freind something is using memory of my graphics card and even its core clock and memory clock are in use so it cant be "DUST" i think.

I would check for dust, but your card is not hitting idle clock speeds so it will be hot.

Have you set the Nvidia control panels power management mode to Adaptive or Prefer Maximum Performance. This(performance mode) may keep the card clocked higher if anything is using it. This includes video players(and flash/html5 video) and web browsers with hardware acceleration.

This would only explain the Higher idle clock speeds.

If you turn on Vsync in your games(or Nvidia Control Panel), if the card is more then powerful enough(for the given game), it will actually cool down as it will work less hard.

Did you change anything? Driver, windows update?

Really Really thank you man ... Power managment in nvidia control panel was set to prefer maximum performance and my browser was making trouble then i changed it too adaptive after then HORRAY! Everything is back to normal.

But still some times core clock and memory clock get higher with 0% load.
