[mythtv-users] Do GeForce GT220s run hot? Was rebooting my system on anything above VDAPUA slim.

Not appreciably. RAM does generate heat, yes, but insignificant
compared to the GPU.

Hang on, I think you have a more basic problem if the GPU fan + two
case fans + PS fan can't keep the thing cool. Are you sure the GPU fan
is even running? 96C sounds like the temperature of a passively
cooled GPU. Is the GPU fan intake situated really close to something
else that would restrict it's ability to suck air?

If you had case ventilation issues, I'd expect the CPU to be hot too,
which again points to a problem with the GPU... maybe one of your GPU
heatsink mounting pins has popped loose or something. In short, I
would look to the video card's physical situation before doing
anything else.
