Well I doubt that you cards will be overheating if they had a good fan and you aren't overclocking them too much.

dont overclock them, that will ensure that your cards will stay at the temps that they were designed to run at. Also make sure the fans dont get clogged up with dust and your case has sufficient airflow.

A GTX SLI setup calls for real good cooling/ventilation. That and a decent PSU.

yeah, if you run it with a crappy underpowered psu you may damage your cards
