Your other problem is due to the fact you're probably using the default fan profile, which is designed (poorly in my mind still) for single card use. This means if you run sli/xfire your primary card will run hotter. The best way to reduce this, is to follow the guide in my signature. It'll allow you to create your own fan profile to allow you to balance fan noise vs load temperatures down to something a lot more reasonable.

Have you tried running the card by itself? If not they'll ask you if you try to RMA and more then likely tell you to try the card by itself, as the reason your card is running hot is due to what I just said above and not a defective card.
