GPU overheating


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?
