My video card says hello.

R9 390 can go to 94 C and be perfectly safely functional.

my card is reaching 85c easily during the summer and is fine
i am running a custom oced bios so all the throttling is disabled otherwise it would throttle from 72c


below 85c is fine
just your typical butthurt basement dweller

Actually, the thermal throttling is there for a reason. Not just to keep GPU temps at an optimal level, but also prevent heat damage caused by high voltage. The higher your voltage, the lower the chip's heat tolerance, and vice versa.
You can always adjust the temperature target, but disabling GPU boost altogether is a bad idea.

As for the topic, when running normally, most GPUs are rated for close to 100c. 1060 specifically is rated for 94c.

i once had to replace a video card.

i think it was at 100 or more and it was in smoke and had a smell.

If my card touches the mid 80s I'd get worried and clean it good right away.

Hot enough to melt cheap Asian solder.

As has been stated a few times in this topic, modern cards take care of themselves. GPUBoost and whatever AMD has ensures that the cards voltages and such keep it running as powerfully as it can while constrained to a target TDP of usually 85C.

Meaning, if the card is running cool it will overclock a little which will make it run hotter, when it gets to the target 85C it will start a balancing act of slightly underclocking till it can maintain 85C.

Worrying that your GPU is running 'in the mid 80s' is like worrying that the average person only uses less than 25% of their lungs throughout most of the day.
