I can easily believe that with such a high temp (assuming either lead or lead free solder)  This would seriously shorten the useful life of the cells.   Sounds like ther eneeds to be some air circulation improvement...  Or are they more efficient at a hicher temp?
You can also increase the sun for more power.  A mirror or fresnel lens...

One neighbor described an issue he had with a contractor-installed solar system:  the temperature got so high in a his panels that it melted the connection points.  Easily solved with silver solder once they knew where to look, but a consideration for the 
DIY-ers here.
