they're EVGA cards. they have crappy cooling. they're expected to run hot. although at that temp, don't expect ANY overclock at all.
my cards usually gets around 76 on first card and 71 on 2nd card playing crysis on hot summer days. and that's like the maximum spikes. normally they stay under 70.

I'm curious why the first card would be doing 'a lot more work'? What work is it doing that the bottom card isn't doing, exactly?
I had always assumed that the higher temps on the top card were attributable to restricted airflow and/or the presence of a large, very hot card sitting right underneath it, with the heat rising directly into it's fan.
And I can't figure out how which card is set to do physX would matter in Furmark, when it doesn't use physX
