    80-90 is a bit high at full load, mine doesnt go beyond 76ºC have you cleaned the cooler/heatsink fins? it can get clotted with dust and prevent a good cooling from the fan. Some canned air should do the trick, or simply take the video card out and open the case and blow some air and clean it yourself with a smooth paintbrush.
    Have you OCeed? check fan % speed with Sapphire Trixx or MSi Afterburner and put it a bit higher to prevent damage from heat (though these chips withstand up to 100-105ºC)

    90c is too hot. Dust out your pc and if temps aren't better get thermal paste and reapply it. You should be below 80c after that

    nah you fine.

    If you worried about temps, just reapply thermal paste. 2 years is long span.

    Also, consider dropping some AA and other video settings that not affecting quality much. That will drop gpu usage and safe temps.

    Personally I don't mind if my card hitting 95. Not like it gonna melt or anyhow badly affect it.
    Some people being really sensitive to temps...

    1) I don't think somebody can help you if your video card goes bad after 2 years of usage.
    2) Does your card has 3+ years warranty?
    3) If there no seals that can be broken by detaching fan, you'll be fine, if you have 3+ years warranty (which I doubt).

    Thermal paste is temporally thing, and can be easily scratched. So I don't think it easy to detect if someone applied paste or not.

    If there no seals, just reapply paste. If there any seals, that can be broken by removing fan, you might wanna bring it to the shop where you bought it and ask them for support.

    Hi,
    On my 6970 I've changed the stock termal paste for OCZ Freeze an won 1-2 °C.
    Yesterday I changed the OCZ for Arctic MX-4 and won yet another 3 °C.

    Now I idle at ~39°C (Room 27°C) and ~75°C under huge load.

    Fractal XL chassis with 3 Noctua 14cm fans at 60%.

    Your idle is fine, the load temperatures are high. You should clean out the GPU.
