    Long story short, temps at idle were 65C. Just tore the card apart (my first time taking apart a graphics card) and found a thin wall of dust at the front of the first set of fins nearest the fan. The only airflow had to have been going around the fins and not through them.

    Temps at idle are now 37C :) Almost a 30 degree drop! Bout to test it at load.

    For what it's worth, I was intimidated about taking apart my card, but it wasn't bad at all. Would definitely suggest it to any X2 owners with temp problems.
