It's more likely the prolblem just solved itself, like it did with me.
Luckily i never let card to reach 105C neither i have seen artifacts.

Not sure how the hell the thing can fix itself. I didn't lose any performance though.

It can reach up to 104F during the Summer or -40F in Winter time.

Now, what State in US has such extreme temperature?

Room temperature doesn't affect you components, we are talking about 1-3C at most.
