    1st - clean your cooler fins for the card - make sure they are clear and ensure your case/card has sufficient airflow, report back temps

    edit: you can remove the pastic shroud for the card to aid cleaning

    Maybe one card is suffocating the other. Is the other computer crossfire as well? Have you seen better temps with the case open?

    Also, do you have some sort of fan control utility? Maybe you're accidentally limiting the fan speed.

    Is your fan speed set to 100 percent?

    If your cards both work fine inside one system, but overheat in another system it's very likely that it's an air-flow problem.

    Put the cards inside the 'problem' computer, leave the side panel open and blow a house fan at the open part of the pc...
