This seems pretty normal, temps will vary a little depending on ambient temperature and how well your case is ventilated

But as far as I can tell those temps are safe, it can probably handle up to about 80-85c, if it gets hotter than that now I'd start to worry

Those temps. are normal. In fact under 70 when gaming is excellent. The AMD cards throttle back to reduce GPU and Memory clocks when under idle conditions. This conserves power and heat. When demanded they ramp up to full performance. Your temps also show that the card and case cooling solutions are working adequately.
