Question gtx 980 high temps

May 15, 2020
as the title says my gtx 980 in games hits round 85-91c especially in just cause 3 and 4 the gpu fan is at 80% and round 85c and ive seen it hit 95c which is really bad for the card, i play in 4k so thats probably why its so hot. i average 45 fps incase anyone asks, is they any way i can decrease the heat or is this normal for a 980? ive had only a couple cards and this is the hottest ive seen one go not to mention because its the founders it sounds like a jet engine and im half surprised my computer isnt floating from how fast the fan spins. thanks for any help ask if you need me to supply any more info
