65C room temperature? Where the hell do you live? Hell?
Edit: You probably meant 65F (at least I hope so), but yes thats a bit on the warmer end for a 470, isn't it? Maybe improve the airflow inside the case or increase the fanspeed to kick in with higher rpm once the card gets under load. Default autofan seems to keep the fanspeed pretty low (44%) for quite a long time, at least on my 480 that is.
