I like to see cards top out in the mid to low 80's. Is this just one of the cards or both? The top card typically runs a little warmer than the bottom one in Crossfire. For longevity, I wold consider doing two things: First, I would make sure the fan speed profile for the fan is operating at maximum RPM above 80c. If so, I would then remove the heatsink and re-apply a quality thermal compound. If that doesn't work, I would consider aftermarket VGA cooling. Also, if you could, link the model of 7850 you have.
