So today after playing 2-3 hours with my new gpu I noticed that it runs pretty hot. It's Sapphire Nitro+ model, and temperatures were in 70-75 range while hot spot was 85-90.
I rised up fan speed in amd software and got some good improvement. New temperature doesn't go above 65 degrees and 80 degrees in hot spot. I was suprised that I got around 7-8 less degrees with modest tweak,
I'm posting screenshots of before and after:

I have 2 questions,
are these temperature values under the fan speed in amd software normal temps and not the hot spot/junction ones?

Am I fine to leave it like this longterm, it won't affect longetivity of fans?

I can live with those new temps and it's just a little noisier than before.
