My msi 1060 6gb OCV1 dual fan graphics card is overheating. It hits 82C in heaven benchmark when the casing is closed and with default fan curve. After setting a very aggressive fan curve and removing side panel, I was able to decrease the temp. to 76 77 C on 99% usage in heaven benchmarks. Are these temperatures normal or Do I have a faulty piece? Please note that no Air Conditioner is running in my room and the casing is a simple miniATX with 1 small intake fan and one relatively higher rpm exhaust fan.
