That seems good to me. Over 90 under load would be high. Its good to keep them under 80c. Not always correct but a good general rule of thumb

If it is a reference style cooler they generally do idle a bit higher if left on auto settings then some of the other configurations.

But it certainly isn't anything to worry about

My MSI 6870 Twin Frozr II is 33-38C idle, 68-75C when gaming... and that's with fans at 80-100%
