My GPU has a bad cooling problem! I NEED HELP!

This problem has raised only lately.

My ATI Radeon 5770 idles at 70 degrees C with the fan speed at 60% and when running games it reaches 100 degrees C with 100% fan speed. I'm worried if I don't do something soon it will fail. My computer is located in an open space, (my processor idles at 28C degrees.

I've cleaned my entire base unit for dust and dirt.

I've also opened up my graphics card and cleaned out any dust and the problem still persists.

The GPU does not feel hot on touch...

Is this a dangerous temperature and what can i do to cool it down?

The Radeon 5770 should averaged an idle temperature of 47C and load temperature of 74C. But that can be + or - 10 degrees depending on card maker and cooler used. Have you tried removing the fan and reapplying thermal paste? Check air flow throughout the case.Failing that an after market cooler might be the answer or a new GPU.
