Okay so very simple, how do I lower down the temperature on my 7970 AMD Radeon? It's brand new and it hits around 86c when I'm playing Crysis 3 or Tera Online. Idles at around 51c. To me, 86c is uncomfortably high, I don't now how to adjust my fan speeds if that would help. Also what would be a safe temp for this graphics card?

You can install MSI afterburner which will allow you to set up a custom fan profile to help run the fans faster. You should also ensure you computer has good airflow, entering from the bottom front and exiting the rear top, good cable management helps as well.
