Too hot.

The rest are OK in my opinion, but 100C sustained temps are not so great.

Mine all range in the high 70 - low 80C range and I'm comfortable with that.

Consider that most cards will thermal throttle at ~110C, and you can see how that might be a little too warm.

High 70Cs are the most id have on a card mining since as heat goes up its going to use more power and have a shorter life.

100C is way to much get it down and youll see the Mhash go up since it wont be slowing its self to prevent damage.
