Though with getting lower scores and artifacting there could be a problem with the card itself. I know cpus can downclock if they start getting too hot I'd imagine a video can as well. You didn't remove and reseat the heatsink for some reason did you?
No absolutely not, I never touched the heatsink. My CPU and GPU temps are good. I have the fan set at 65% on the GPU and never rose above 70 while playing Crysis. I have a watt meter plugged into my wall with my entire computer plugged into the watt meter and it never rose above 400watts. I have a 650watt PSU.
