    You should probably increase the fan speed.

    Probably, if you run it at that temp for months at a time, you will greatly increase the chance you burn it out, or at least shorten its life expectancy.

    You want to give us any more info? Brand of the GPU? Operating temps before patch? Any recent driver changes, etc? Any coolant system in your PC other than stock fans? Is the card or CPU overclocked?

    Check here for normal operating temps:

    Mine is running hotter for sure, with 0 changes to driver or hardwares.

    Other friends are reporting everything from higher GPU temps, to outright freezes/GPU resets that they never had before.

    At the very least, turn off the anistrophic filtering cause AMD/ati cards are horrible with it, but they do antialiasing well though. Running your gcard at those temps will destroy it quick, burst caps etc.... you need to setup a gaming profile for rift with a program called afterburner from MSI. That will let your card run at stock settings and fan speed for 2d rendering and then you can make another profile with a 80-100% fan speed and a slight overclock. yes, the card will be louder but its worth it not destroy your components. I'd ypu use a headset you probably won't even hear it.

    Is the fan going to break at those speeds?

    1: Check the video card for obstructions (dust bunnies etc) and remove them.
    2: If possible move an adjacent card or the video card so as the neighboring "slot" is empty.
    3: Download any number of "tweaker" programs (MSI Afterburner, Sapphire Trixx, Riva Turner etc) and create a custom fan profile.

    Most ATI GPUs iirc, are capable to run up to 110C, probably not suggested but yes, they can.

    If you are technically capable, and have the know how, you could replace the thermal material (paste/goo) under the Heat Sink Fan assembly that "attaches" the HSF to the GPU itself.

    Lastly, there is the Ostrich method,..Buy an enclosed (over the) ear headset, such as Sennheiser PC350s.. with A:: your fans cranked to 100% you wont hear a thing :-)
    CPU: AMD FX 9370@ 5.1Ghz Cooling: Corsair H100
    Mem: 32GB GSkill 1.5V 9-9-9
    HDD: 1 OCZ SSD (boot drive), 2x OCZ SSD in Raid 0 (game drive) 1x 2TB (backup)
    GPU: Sapphire 290
    Asus VH242H (1920x1080p) X3 for 5760 x 1080 Goodness
