Default Furmark cause major overheating on GTX 280?

I've been reading the forums for a while now and noticed more then handful of people are experiencing heat issue with GTX 280. I just got my card yesterday, it's a EVGA OC, I was so excited, until I ran Furmark. Even though the fan was at 100%, temp rose to 105c with major artifacts on the graphics. Then I tried Mass effect, Grid, Crysis, Assasin's Creed, load temp was a little better at 85-90 but I get some artifacts and tears during gameplay. Is there something wrong with my card, the graphics tears are very noticeable....it doesn't seem like a common problem on this forum. Any suggestion, should I request to RMA this back to EVGA? My case has very cool cooling, with 4 fans on the side panel and 2 fans to the back so I don't think ambient temp is the issue.
