If its a reference model yes its perfectly normal due to the retarded engineer at AMD who put a useless heatsink on it. 

If its not a reference cooler. (the one with the big blow on it) and a custom heatsink design you may want to shoot sapphire an Email.

Yep thats the reference junk cooler the cards shipped with. So 95C is 100% normal.
