Thats way high temp and if your suspecting that it could be getting higher then that in the day then thats probably why your getting the wilting and curling of the leaves. Daytime temps should run around 78 and night time can be down to 68. That is the "ideal" temp range. When temps are that high you need to water them constantly as they will use it to cool themselves down through tranpiration. Your T5s can be down bout 4"-6" away from your plants. If they are right ontop of your plants you will get flourescent burns also.
high and mid 80's could be higher during the day. have a fan on to circulate air. i can raise my lights. have 4 2" T-5's. 2 2700K and 2 6500k

Remove the dead and dying fan leaves so you can tell easier if new ones appear. That way you will know if it is continueing to spread.
well i looked at them more this morning and to me it seems like all the fan leaves are curling up and drying and dying. they have like a smell to them, like chlorophyll smell. the new growth seems fine and almost no affected

Are you using a soil or soilless mix? If your using a soil your pH should run 6.0 - 6.4 and if its a soilless mixture then your pH should be running 5.4 to 5.8. Also if I was you I would get different nutes then that shultz, go to your local gardening shop and find a quality organic product like Earth Juice, Botanicare, Roots Organic and so on. They are not that much more expensive then what your using and you will get way better results.
well if its heat stress i lowered the temp now. soil ph im afraid to water right now since i flushed it yesterday and the soil is still saturated. the soil ph measured around 6.3 - 6.6 been feeding it plain tap water for about 3 weeks and 2 days ago i gave it SCHULTZ 10-15-10 plant food half dose which is 3.5 drops in a quart of water because i thought the plant had a soil deficiency.
