I'm hitting about 86C at load. Also, because I'm running dual monitors, the card never idles at 51mhz so my idle temps are a lot higher than they should be at about 60C. I really wish they'd fix that bug.

I did notice that overclocking the card beyond the stock overclock does not seem to make temps any higher. Currently I'm running at 840/1680/2060 rock solid and plan on going for higher.
Can you try something for me and see if it helps. I was able to get mine to idle at 51Mhz by dropping the Hz on my 120Hz LCD to 110. Maybe if you set it to 59Hz it may do the same.
