GTX 470 temps too high?

So I was playing Metro 2033 with my GTX 470 last night (OC'd to 775 core/1800 mem) and I Alt+Tab'd out and saw my GPU had hit 93C while playing (usual is more 88C or so). I decided that I needed to look up some stuff on GTX 470 & 480 temps since I know that's pretty hot. Apparently, the default fan profile for reference GTX 470/480's allows them to hit 95C or so on stock speeds while benchmarking so my peak temps are not that outrageous.

What I want to know is--does anyone have any good sources about the temperature limits for this card? I know there's the 105C thing, but people generally don't let cards get this hot, so I thought maybe it's known that the 400 series are designed to withstand higher temps. Any insight (even without sources) would be appreciated. Thanks.

By the way, it's the MSI N470GTX

Thanks for the help. I figured out that I'd messed up my fan profile in MSI Afterburner. It's cooler now.
