No, it shouldn't have anything to do with your temp. Ck airflow and the fan speed on your card (GPU-Z).

Software voltage monitors like that are usually inaccurate. If you think you are having voltage problems, a multimeter on a spare connector is the only sure way to check. Also, you need to load the system down to get voltage readouts that matter. Even a marginal PSU can look Ok at idle. Run Furmark and SuperPi at the same time and check those voltages. 12V is the voltage to be concerned about on a modern system.
