Originally, the original factory cooler design from AMD, the original R9 290's ran 95c constantly in all games, no matter what we did, even with the stock fans at 100%. The cards are designed to do this all day every day under any load for years at a time. Even if you have a factory aftermarket cooled card, the max is still 95c, and the card it's self is still designed to run up to 95c all the time.

Anything below 95c for these cards is considered "Good", anything below 80c for gaming for these cards is considered "Excellent" and you should be extremely happy with that as it is. You don't need to do anything else to the system if it's averaging 70-75'ish C gaming now.
