I run my 550 ti overclocked to the following settings:
Core clock - 1000MHz
Shader clock - 2000MHz
Memory clock 2052 MHz

I then set up a custom fan profile in MSI afterburner to increase fan speed with GPU temp.
Under a 100% load for several hours my temps peak at 51C.

You might try tweaking your fan speed, or adding fans to your case.
Maybe even replace your case fans with something that has a bit more umph.

Upgrading your case to on with more cooling fans should bring your temps down to around the 70 mark I'll wager.

EVGA supplies very good software called EVGA Precision which can be used to easily set the fan profile. For example, you can set the fans to be relatively silent until 60 degrees, and then change to an aggressive fan speed. You can use it to tell the card to change the fan speed in steps/jumps, or smoothly per degree.

On a subjective note: if you build your own rig then you are responsible for adequate cooling solution. I agree that it's unfortunate that manufacturer's market research tells them that consumers value silent PCs higher than long-life of the components. But EVGA is not expecting you to fold 24/7 they presume you will mostly surf the web and play WoW for a couple hours. Having 6 case fans doesn't always mean there is sufficient air movement in the right places. In GreyWhiskers example I wonder if the top fan cold air isn't just going right back out the back (but leaving the dust in your case). If side is blowing out, and front fan is usually impeded by drive cage, does any cold air actually reach the GPU?

Another data point FWIW. I have an MSI GTX 560 Ti (dual fans) running at the stock clock of 832 MHz. With a side fan (92 mm) blowing on it in a cool room (68 F), it runs at 58 C on P6800 series work units. That is with plenty of clearance to the bottom of the card; in fact, no other cards in the other slots. When I fold also with a second card (GTX 550 Ti) in the next available slot, the GPU temp increases to 68 C on both cards. That is in part due to air flow restriction, and in part due to the additional heat load. I have still one more PCIe x16 slot free, but won't use it, as it would push up the temps too much.
