How are my temperatures?

Alright, so I just picked up a pre-owned Gigabyte Windforce OC 1080 to replace my Asus Dual 1060 6GB. Got a smoking good deal and this GPU kicks some a**. Of course, temperatures raised a lot from where they were with a 1060 and I know these temperatures are pretty good, I just want to make sure since I'm having trouble finding "optimal" and max temperatures for my components online. My room stays at about 68 degrees fahrenheit.

For anyone interested, you can view the entire GPU-Z Sensor Log with this link:

GPU - Gigabyte Windforce OC 1080. Overclocked using Gigabyte Extreme or whatever it's called. 1885.5MHz is what the 'OC' mode puts the clock speed at under load.

CPU - i5-8600K. Stock speeds but cores are synced. Cooled by Corsair H100i V2 240MM AIO.

MAX GPU TEMP: 71c @ 1885.5MHz / Fan Speed: 55% @ 2104RPM.

MAX CPU PACKAGE TEMP: 54c

The max temp for an Intel CPU before throttling (called T junction) is 100c. AMD is a little different since their CPUs run a bit hotter than Intel usually. For GPU they can vary from card to card. For instance the GTX 970 max temp is 98c (says Nvidia) while 1080's start to throttle around 85-90. I would say some general rules for temps are 1) as low as possible while still meeting performance expectations 2) under 80 is fine for a not constant load (for regular desktop components) 3) make sure that you have ample airflow in and out, if you only have in then the hot air can get trapped in the case.

If your CPU is idling at 54c that is on the warm side and should be addressed. If its 54c under load then it is fine.
