You should keep an eye on temperature. Check if your fans are clean, as a clogged up fan/cooler can run 20-30 degrees Celsius warmer, especially in summer time. Clean them at least once a year, twice is better.

A GPU throttles down if it gets too hot, usually above 70-90 degrees depending on brand, type etc...
