AMD R9 290X heat issues.

I'm worried about my GPU's temp. as I already have all the fan slots installed with top notch quality fans in my NZXT Guasrdian RB921.


Plus, my CPU and other parts are at normal temperatures.


My GPU is R9 290X, 4G Sapphire edition. Check pic below.


On idle state my GPU is at the temperature of 48-58 degree Celcius.


But on heavy pressure on playing games like FIFA, BO3 @Ultra on 2k/1080p. The GPU heats up to 90-95 degrees within 30-40 seconds, sometimes even faster.


Now, I already know that this model can get pretty hot so should I be worried or not?

And if not, then would it be okay if I play on it for continuous long hours on that temp.? Can it resist that?


FYI - These are summer stats and I haven't checked before this; so, I don't know about winter. I have already cleaned the fans and re-applied the thermal paste.
