EVGA GTX 1060 SC safe temps?

I recently upgraded my pc and installed a GTX 1060 6GB SC. When gaming its at 60%-99% GPU usage and goes between 72c-82c. My cable management in my pc is very good and the airflow in my case is also very good. Looked at some forums and only saw to fix cable management. Turned up the fans up in MSI Afterburner and it still gets up to 80c. Not sure if this is normal, just trying to get some insight.

Specs -
CPU - i5 4690k (not oc yet)
CPU Cooler - Noctua NH-U12s
Ram - 16gb ddr3 1866mhz
PSU - EVGA 500w
GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6gb Super Clocked Edition

    that's fine, but cooler is all ways better if it goes highr the 85c then may need to do something I think 92 is the limit

    Thermal limits
    Rated: 83.0C
    Max: 92.0C

    if you registered your card as you should with evga [important with them for support and warrantee ] that makes you a member and you can post on there forums as well

    thermal throttling don occure in till 94c ?????? better look at how NVidia gpu boost 3.0 works that's not correct in any way
