I'd think if you can't hold onto them with bare hands they are too
hot.  100C is *way* too hot.  It's a wonder they are working at all.

If they are in an enclosure, clean the air filter (if any), make
sure the fan(s) is/are running (and actually moving air); add a fan
if there isn't one.  If they are not in an enclosure, (or if they're
in a big one, like the same box with the rest of the system) add a
fan either blowing on them or drawing air over them.
