Those with good temps, what brands do you have?
That was an Evga card, but so far all the ones I've seen pictures of have the same horrible paste job.
I have two PNY 480's. They idle at 44c and 41c @ 45% fan speed and so far I've only had one game hit 80 or above and that was Crysis which hit 83c and 81c @ 79%fan speed.

Have you tried running just one monitor? Might give a better idea of how hot your card actually is. Dual monitors is fubar with these cards and if I were a multi-monitor person I wouldn't own one.
