Help! My ASUS GTX 550 Ti is overheating :(

My gpu stays at 44 degrees when it is idle at 100% fan speed
While playing csgo at 720p everything low and windowed it goes up to 83 degrees. I really don't know the issue and for the fan part, i have one fan over the gpu and one on the right. If underclocking fixes this please provide the guide too...

    That card is really old which means its thermal paste to. I also had a gtx 550ti and as I desembled it the thermal paste was really dry and hard. It took me a hour to remove that. Just buy some thermal paste (usually costs like 5 dollars or cheaper), screw your card open, wipe the thermal paste of the gpu (If the old paste is dry than try using some alcohol), put a pee size of new thermal paste on the gpu and than screw it back up.

    Here is a guide:
  2. Dust off your gpu by a vaccum cleaner. dust causes gpu to overheat in many cases.
