86C is overkill, i can't understand how it gets that hot for you....
Seems to be related to screen resolution ? I forgot to mention: Im using different
types of displays. So the screen resolutions are different.

Tests I have done:

1. 1280x1024, 2 similar screen: I have tried to use 2 x 19" monitors and surprise temp stayed around 56C or so.

2. 1680x1050, 1280x1024, 2 different screens: Im seeing a temp increase up to 85C or
so. The performance level is 1 or 2, Performance Mode: Maximum Performance.

The card is set on Preferred Mode: Adaptive !

could this be the reason for such difference in temp increase ?
