    Make sure your warranty with E-VGA is good first before you open it up, I totally bricked my GTX 295 when I opened it up, luckily E-VGA gave me a replacement card (GTX 570).

    Also rem it's not only the gpus cpu that needs cooling. Your ram will have some thermal pads, but you might know this already OP.

    They can be easily replaced as well but ofc you need to buy them as well. Best check they are ok n just do the tim.

    If done right you might get a good 5-10c drop with cleaning + tim, which should keep you around the 80c mark, but it is strange you are crashing at say around 85c...

    P.s My 580 with stock fan could get up to the high 80's with some games..

    rem using vsync will reduce temps.

    I'm going to redo the thermal paste if I have any problems after today.

    Last night I played Sleeping Dogs for 4 hours and it never crashed. It turned out after checking event viewer the same .sys file was always the one experiencing a problem. This in turn with the high temperatures is more than likely why I was having so many crash problems. I never got a BSOD or a pure "freeze" of my computer so it didn't seem to me like it was the video card and I think at this point after FINALLY cleaning my computer of every NVIDIA file (I tried driver sweeper every time, their clean install about 15 times or so at this point, and manual removal about 5+). I used a program called Driver Fusion which finally did it for me.

    Now that I have a "truly clean install" this file isn't crashing. I didn't see it because it never stated in Windows - just in the event viewer.

    run a custom fan profile, if your running on auto fan it will heat things up especially oc

    I changed thermal paste on my GTX 570 to MX-3 and the difference was nothing. Those cards come with pretty good paste already but who knows, maybe reapplying would change something. Maybe the contact is not the best. I assume that OP has decent case air cooling?

    This...mine never get over 65C... you need to have the fan ramp up as temps rise.

    Just curious.. try limiting your FPS. Access your frame limiter in the nvidia control panel and set it to 59, 60. Launch the game, monitor the temps.

    Make sure VSYNC is on, if it's off your FPS may skyrocket and temps will rise with that. Also, use a custom fan profile...I force my FAN on my GTX 590 to 75% when gaming...it's a tad noisy but it's never seen anything above 70C on either core in ANY game ever.
