I was just wondering if the RTX 2070 SUper can handle 70-80 Celcius? Or should I make a own profile and turn upp the fan speed?

My founders 2070 super under load hits 70c, 73c is the hottest I have ever seen it with the stock fan profile. If you have a founders 2070 super and it's hitting 80c under load the cooler is capable of better, you likely have poor case airflow. While I wouldn't worry about damaging the card at 80c, GPU boost 3.0 will begin to start lowering clocks more aggressively at that temp which will reduce performance slightly.

This is true. Most newer GPUs start lowering clocks at around 80C and will start throttling at 85-90C. Case airflow and the setup of fans should also be taken into account.

My evga RTX 2070 XC Gaming stays around 70-75C under load with a +131Mhz core OC and +950 Memory OC but only thanks to a much more aggressive manual fan curve I have set. I believe before the manual fan curve and on stock settings it would be around 70C as well. My case is an NZXT S340 Elite, which is a bit choked off, but I do have two 140mm fans installed at the front.
