Are you reading the 36C temp at the driver control panel ?

Only way to get real-time gpu and ambient temps is by using Rivatuner's Hardware monitor.

And without really good heatsinking, you just might be surprised how much extra heat is generated by the gpu volts increase to 1.5. Especially if you also do some extreme overclocking.
