So I set my new system a week ago and started noticing my gpu was running pretty hot at default settings while playing Wolcen(capping frames at 144 was getting 98% usage), and at default the temp was 82c. My case is the Lian Li Lancool2(and I know its not the greatest case for airflow), but I have it set up with 2 intakes, 1 exhaust and 2 pointed right at the gpu on the gpu shroud. So now with that set up, im getting about 76c with Heaven pushing 98% on the gpu, and slowly climbing(opening case door drops the temp by 2 maybe 3c). And at this point the fans are at 100%. I know its within limits an all, but seeing a lot of post of 60's temps makes me wonder if something my be off with mine.

    Check your TIM and re-apply liberally if you feel that you've maxed out your fans.  Make sure your fan settings are applied in X1 and they are operating at the speed you expect them to.

    Right now the fans are running at 100% at a 76-77c, so they seem to be working right. How much of a pia is it going to tear it down?

    Assuming it's not 35C in your room, that's really bad.  Is this at 100% power or at the 124% power limit?  You're really sure you're blowing cool air on the card's fans from the bottom?
     
    Look up the FTW3 Hybrid kit install directions, that will tell you how to get the stock cooler off.

    You can also try to open your case and see if there is any differences.
     
    I know for example that asus rog strix has kind of same aircooler performance and mine worked at about 75C under 125% (330w) with closed case and coolers on auto ~60% (performance mode/ or above 85C on quiet mode).
    Also I tested that with opened case and 100% fans on gpu I got 64C in furmark.
    Well, that was more like open bench than an opened case :) 

     
    So you should try to run your card with 100% fans and with opened case and if your temps will be higher than 70C - that will indicate some troubles with thermal interface and you should check it. If not - at least you should not remove cooler from your gpu and search something else wrong in your case setup.

    Sounds about right.  Some people have cooler environments with the use of AIOs to keep their temps low.  I don't think regular air cooling will see 60c range at full load so with that said, your GPUs performing optimally for it's current situation so you shouldn't be alarmed.  They have a max temp of 89c before thermal protections kick in.

    Well, just put all back together(no screws left over!!!!), and its idling at 32-33c. I was idling about 40c before. Time to see how it handles a load. And yes, this is with the power slider all the way.

    Well, after letting it burn in, it climbed to 66c on the aggressive fan curve, and slowly kept creeping up to about 68c, before I decided to open case and max fans. And at this point, its lowered to about 64c. So I guess its just the poor case air flow. But I think I will get a 140 to feed the psu area. And see if they helps the gpu intake. But overall, applying new compound seemed to make a major difference. And I will post a pic of what it looked like when i tore it down and let someone see if they see something off.

    So.. did you disassembled your gpu? :) Or what did you "put all back together"?
    UPD oh, I see now. So it was bad TIM.
     
    64C on full fans with opened case seems totally legit. You can try to close case with same full fans (no curves - just full fans!) and if temp rises only to 66C-68C - well, that is kind of good too. Open case is always better than closed one.

    Well that was quick.  What paste, how much and how did you apply it?

    I did take the HSF off and reapply some thermal paste(the tube of Noctua paste that came with cpu cooler), and put it back in. And with full fans and open case it went down to 62c, but closed case its creeping back up. Atm its about 68 and slowing moving up.

    Did you just throw some more paste on in addition to the stock paste?  Which is fine.

    Nah, I cleaned it all off, and put a line down the length of the gpu itself.

    And I've left it running, and it keeps creeping up, 71c atm. Better than what it was I guess.

    This is what it looked like when I broke it down.

    Huh, I would consider that good thick coverage, if a bit uneven.  Missing a bit on the upper left corner and it looks really thick on the right half.  
     
    However, you may have had a slight, oddly shaped air pocket in the middle upper area, where you see that branching.

    the GPU cooler pumps most of that heat from the card - into your PC case - work on airflow to get more cool air into the case & heat out
     
    Also, what is your room temp ?
     
    Your temps look good after you reapplied TIM
