In my experience with Video cards,the fact that the temp jump is immediate,tells me the cards are fried. My first pair of 580's heated up right away,and the tech guys told me that an immediate temp increase like that means fried cards period,which they replaced without any questions. Even if you had no thermal paste on them,they wouldn't get that hot,that quick. At least that's what I was told. Do you still have warranty? Good luck.
