Default PC Overheating

Since 2 weeks ago I manage to get away the Lag problems from my old PC and got my self a new Computer.

But here's another problem and that is Overheating:

Whenever I play my Steam games for a long duration of time, I get very laggy moments during gameplay. And while I looked for a situations to this, A lot answers were that I have to get a Liquid or Water Cooler for my Video Cards.

I was a bit confused so I looked at the temp. of the cards during Gameplay and one card went up to 80-90c while the other card is like 40-50c.

Is there some kind other situation to fix this?

My PC: Micro Center - PowerSpec G213 Desktop Computer 390336

Video Temps:


P.S. Do I really have to buy a Liquid/Water Cooler for my PC?

P.S.S: Games I play is:
Mirror's Edge
Team Fortress 2
Borderlands
Dead Space
Dead Space 2
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Sonic Generations
Sonic And SEGA All Stars Racing
Portal
Portal 2

If 1 card is a lot hotter than the other, ventilation issue or defective card.

80C is pretty average under load nowadays, maybe above. 90C is sort of high, it's usually ok, I wouldn't feel comfortable though.

your vram or some other component will eventually get damaged if you maintain that temperature for extended period lol.

my 6870 runs at 65C max when I play games for more than an hour...

sounds like defective cooling in the card. only a couple of those games will even need much video ram.
if you're still under warranty i'd recommend sending it in, i completely fried a 9800gt a few years ago by continuing to run it at 90c.

keep in mind that the fermi cards do tend to run pretty hot though.

Nvidias generally run hotter than AMDs though. The 550 Ti has a max temperature of 100C, so assuming the average load temp is 85, it's ok, but treading the comfortable/uncomfortable line.

100C sounds scary
It'll reduce the lifespan by a lot since there's a lot of irregular expansion and contraction of the board and components.

80C is quite normal when on load.

I don't know the TDP for Nvidia cards very well, but AMDs can run at 100C with little to no problems, but for consumers it's specified lower to prevent damage. It simply depends on the size of the chip. The problem isn't really the GPU itself but rather other components. I've seen melted cases the chip got too hot and the heatsink was touching the plastic. I've also had the heatsink fry the vram.

My GTX 680 runs at 75C under "full load". Not quite sure what full load is cause of the boosting of the card. ~800mhz and 1200mhz run at same temp.
