The top card draws heated air off the bottom card so it will be hotter.

Which case do you have? Do you have adequate airflow? Case fans?

75c is ok, 95c is getting warm. 100c or so start to worry.

Yeah, increase fan speed on top card.

Enhance or upgrade case intake/exhaust airflow. Place a fan on the front (or side) of the cards to blow fresh cooler air across the cards.

Attach a PWM 120mm fan on the outside of the case in the gpu exhaust area to assist hot air from the cards out of the case.

Make efforts to keep ALL components dust free as possible. Wipe fan blades periodically.  Clean ALL filters...often.

Lower ambient temperature if possible.
