I have this exact card.

You should see lower temperatures if you improve the airflow in your case. Manually increasing the speed of your GPU fans will also help. I'm able to get temperatures in the high 60s when running my 2060 at 96% utilization, overclocked +98 MHz, and with my GPU fans set at 100%.

I have no experience with it, but changing the thermal paste to an inevitably higher-quality compound should likewise also probably reduce temperatures somewhat.

I would not think its a problem 80 is not hot its more like warm
How is that only warm? A couple more degrees and it'll begin thermal throttling (as I have observed in my own 2060 KO). Even if you manually adjust the maximum temperature in afterburner, the highest temperature the software will allow the card to go to is 87 degrees. What exactly constitutes hot in your opinion if 80 degrees isn't hot?

That's kind of normal. I've been seeing people saying cheaper rtx 2060 reaching high 70s to 80s. You can try setting a manual fan curve on msi afterburner and undervolting
