My gtx 1070 is a founders edition card so i know it should operate hotter than any other card so when playing rise of the tomb raider on very high settings for 2 or 3 hours i get a max temp of 78 degree which i fell is normal, so should i be worried by this temperature or no? And the ambient temp is 26 degree with fan speed at 40 and 60 i cant remember exactly, so should i remove the card and apply thermal paste? I have cleaned it from 2 weeks when i have bought it from someone, i cleaned the blower fan with compressed air it was not so dirty but i did this in any occasion to not harm it, and i keep my pc very clean with alot of cleaning and i have a cooler master case cm 590 III with filters. The pc is working great with no error or performance issue, but i need to know all of this and if i should remove the card and disassemble it to apply thermal paste and clean the heatsink or is it ok to only clean the blower fan? because i have read that dust wont accumulate in the heatsink they will be stuck in the blower fan. And thank you i appreciate your help and sorry for the long paragraph but to make sure i have said everything and please answer all question thank you.

I'd clean the entire cooling assembly and remove the factory applied thermal paste with a higher quality TIM.

That's one massive wall of text :/
Punctuation would help others with comprehension and subsequent answers to this thread.


P.S: I don't see any question marks, just a few things I felt needed stating.

It is very common when reapplying paste to have to create a thread asking how to fix a card when you have badly reapplied the paste, in all honesty you shouldn't have to do it.

78 max is fine, not a problem at all. Idle temps are not relevant as you can change them by merely changing the fan speed.

You can safely ignore idle, many cats are designed to idle at 60 by switching the fans off until it hits 60. It does no harm. In fact worse for components are cycling temps, so moving from 60 to 75 is better than 30 to 75.
