if thats your temperature under load, then its fine. if its at idle, then you got something wrong.

It's within specs but if it was my system Id say it was too hot for my comfort and Id do something about it. I guess it's old habbit but I try to keep gpu below 60c under full load. Thats where I am with current gpu under load.
