Check voltages. Failing PSU might cause such issues.

Clean out the dust from your entire PC case. If totally clean and you still get those temps, then either:

1. The heatsink has not been reattached properly.
2. Not enough new thermal paste was applied.
3. The sensor is giving the wrong reading.

well in that case I think the heatsink isn't making proper contact with the chip somehow...

or tighten the screws properly :pt1cable: 

btw does the heatsink use heatpipes? If them pipes have a leak they won't really work anymore... just a thought. Years ago there was a fellow on this forum who had ghettomodded his heatsink so it'd fit into the case, he sawed off the ends of the heatpipes to make it fit and was very surprised when the cpu got really hot... :na:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_pipe
heat pipes are those small tubes that most 'higher' tier heatsinks use to spread the heat efficiently, every cpu tower cooler has them these days but they aren't as common with mid tier graphics cards, the cooler on my 5770 didn't have them... and there is some liquid inside and if it leaks out the pipe won't transfer heat very much at all anymore...

does the heatsink get warm to the touch when the gpu hits high temperatures? If it is cool and you can't feel any hot air been blown away then it is a clear sign that the heatsink isn't making proper contact with the chip. Maybe the mounting bracket is bent or something so it is not pressing against the chip hard enough even when the screws are tigh.
