Worried about temperature on the MBP Retina

Text:

Hi guys,
-I just received my new MBP(256GB SSD and 8GB RAM) Retina yesterday, and I'm really crazy about it. It's a really awesome computer, but I hoped that it would run cooler than it has been.
+I just received my new MBP (8GB RAM & 256GB SSD) Retina yesterday, and I'm really crazy about it. It's a really awesome computer, but I hoped that it would run cooler than it has been.
I normally have the following things running at once:
Chrome (Canary - because, it's the only chrome which actually is supporting retina display)
Safari (same reason)
Skype v2 (just opened, not calling),
Diablo 3 installing
Teamviewer (opened, not using)
5-6 tabs in my browsers
I actually use SMC Fan Control for Fan control and iStat Menu to watch the temperature and the temperature is around 80C with the fan rotating at 2800 rpm
I don't understand why the MBP (which should easily run video encoding, gaming, and others...) runs so hot.
-Can you explain this to me please ? I'm getting worried about my MBP. :S
