Have you checked your CPU temperature? Cleaning the fans might not be enough.
You may need to re-do thermal compound between CPU & Heatsink.

850 powersupply tells us nothing about the quality of the unit. What brand & Model is it?

If the 850W PSU is a cheapie, it may not be able to handle 2 video cards. Other than that, did you remove the heatsink from the CPU to clean it? If you did, did you completely remove the old thermal material & apply fresh paste?
