So, i have recently been given a 4k dell sq2817q monitor as a second monitor to my lg gaming monitor running at 120hz

I set the monitor to 4k and i have noticed that there is a high idle temp to be expected, also with the core clock either staying elevated or bouncing up and down.

However, when i start to play back video, normal web browsing, or watching a episode of netflix. The temp sits around 50-60C and once it's gets up there, it says there and I have to either manually turn on the fans to reduce temp or just leave the pc running and not using it for hours to reduce temperature.

Now I know that the 4k resolution will raise the temperature some, but after looking on other forumns and that, nothing i have found has explained why my gpu is running so warm all the time.

EDIT:
here is my pc specs:
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600
Cooler: NZXT X62
MOBO: Asus B350-F Gaming
RAM: 16 GB G skill trident z RBG DDR4-3000
GPU: MSI 1070ti Titanium 8GB
PSU: EVGA 550W 80+ Gold

Answer me this: on what temp you want your GPU to be at all times?

Since 60C for a GPU running 2x monitors, with one being 4K is really good. If you'd see 80+C out of the GPU then yes, you may start to worry.
