It may just need cleaned. Canned air and a box of Q-tips.
Also check the air flow in the case. Might have to improve on what you have.

check if evga has some software for the fan. At least asus has one which allows you to control the fan speed, and set it to change according to the temperatures etc.

What is the tweak that's out there for Nvidia's control panel? Cool some thing...
It has some automated controls.
