Agreed.  IMHO 81°C is definitely too much for sustained operation.
Of course ambient temp and other factors will influence stability,
and Chris (the OP) might be lucky. :-)

That's because P1 is close to the chassis fans that sit between the
disk cage and the board, while P0 is further away, near the rear of
the system.
