Hi
I recently Got a good deal for a less used GTX 1080 ROG Strix Edition and I paired it With i5 10400
My temps are 40-45degree in idle
and Goes Upto 81 degree While gaming.
This 81 degree will stay like that for a long time without increasing
Is this normal?
Also please note that my cabinet has a bad reputation for its airflow (Antec NX200)
Should I reapply thermal paste on my gpu to improve thermal performance? Will it make any improvements at all?
Please Help

its not to bad, use https://www.msi.com/Landing/afterburner/graphics-cards and set a fan curve, no harm in replacing the paste as well, just make sure you google it if its your 1st time
