76c is not that hot. The factory default is 95c. Don't worry about it.

that is normal with the standard fan-curve - target is between 75-77°C
you can download MSI Afterburner and create a custom fan curve - like in MSI Afterburner Custom Fan Curve - YouTube
or google: "MSI Afterburner custom fan curve" - many how2s

In the past, the AMD Forum has mentioned that MSI Afterburner interferes with AMD Wattman and should be uninstalled. I don't know if the latest versions of MSI Afterburner makes it compatible with Wattman or not. Up to now, AMD Forum still says to uninstall any 3rd party software similar to MSI Afterburner to prevent issues with Wattman and AMD drivers.
Don't forget that Wattman also allows you to set the fan speeds for individual games (Profiles). This is what I have done. I have an R9-390 and I'm not sure what the max temp is allowed for my card but I wouldn't like it to be running at 76 degrees either so I set the fans speed to increase automatically to the temp I set as soon as that game starts. When I come out of the game, the fans speed will slow down to whatever I've set in Global.
I'm happy to keep my temps around 65 degrees max. Yes, the fans may be working a little harder but what's the point of having an expensive card with Twin Froziar Fans if they're not going to get used.
