Your HSF should not be more than warm to the touch. Artifacts are more of a result of videocard instability than CPU overheating.

Usually, when the CPU overheats, it gives you a BSOD then either resets or turns itself off. Most motherboards have built in, default enabled "shut down temps" to prevent damage to the CPU.
