AMD 6770 Overheating

I have been having this issue for some time now.  Sitting idle the GPU temp is at 65c and 101c under load.  I monitor the temps using the AMD Catalyst control performance monitor.  The fan is constantly running around 50% and soon after launching a game it shoots up to 100% fan speed making it rather loud.  I have done some research on this heating issue but have not found many conclusive answers on how to cool the card down.  When I first got the card it did not have this issue, it happened about a year after getting it.

I remove the card and clean it out almost monthly to prevent the idle heat from reaching 70c.  I always make sure that it is re-seated correctly making sure there is no connection issue.

 

Any help is welcomed.
