My RTX 2080 is sitting at 60 on idle and around 60-70 when playing different games but when I installed the gpu when I got it a few days ago installed afterburner the gpu temps at idle were around 30-40 degrees celsius and now 60 with GPU clock at 1515ghz I had the same problem with my previous gtx 970 when sometimes the teams were exactly at 60 degrees celsius when not playing games and other days they were down to 30-40 degrees celsius anyone know why is that thanks.
 
60C makes sense, most cards will not bother with fans until they hit 60C, so it'll tend to approaching 60 or dropping away from it. The 1515Mhz is more of a concern unless you are running at >120Hz on your screen at which point it's normal. I run my 144 at 120 to allow the GPU to idle.

I have a 144hz monitor but like I said before some days it will work and the temps will go down to 30-40 and clock to 200 or 300 and other days like today core clock stays at 1515 at all times when I am not playing anything just sitting on homescreen and temps are at 60
