GPU overheating

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

I've purchased the ATI Radion HD 5970 sapphire with Crossfire enabled. I have been told the official specs for heat is 34c idle and 80c max load. Though I can easily get up to 100c letting the fans auto cool and also by placing the fans on 100% manual. I'm using CC 10.4

I use these cards both for work and gaming. Any idea if ATI is giving us the wrong information of how hot these cards should really be running? Or is there a chance that the sensors are reading incorrectly?

Images here.

Make sure you have good airflow inside your case.
Do you mean you have 2x HD5970 inside the case?
which sapphire version?
