Well guys, I have this graphics card from 8 months and I recently experienced problems with overheating for example after using msi overclocking application, I used Msi Kombustor to test the temperatures and after I opened the program I get 85° celsius in 3 seconds, ITS CRAZY i know. But how Can I fix this problem, do I have to buy a new one? Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.

I have no warranty since in my country I have only 6 months so well, anyways I dont understand how it can overheat because of the gpu usage and not since I start windows :/

Didn't understood it well. Please explain it a bit better.

And No Warranty! :??:
You should always have 2-3 years Warranty while buying Electronic Items.

Please tell me you are joking. PLEASE. There is still a heatsink and still contact points between the heatsink and the GPU.

And he bought a Sapphire card, not a XFX.

Thanks to all for the help and, well, it seems to be a problem of the gpu itself, Idk I just keep getting the card overheated, I guess I can just underclock it and find for a new one :(
 
No offense, but the way you are explaining things (even with typos and whatnot), it doesnt sound like you know what you are talking about. Im just gonna come out and say it, I doubt that if you replaced the thermal paste, that you did it right. Research how to apply it and redo it. Id almost guarantee that is where your overheating problems come from.
