I think even i change my casing i cant get this kind of temps because the minimum temp of r9 290 is 70c, so just want to know if its safe if i leave my case open and with a house fan blowing right next to it, im not comfirtable in 74c so id rather do this for lower temps is it safe?
you want your temps below 80 (imo). it can run 94-95, like others said, but they might start throttling. make sure you monmitor your vrm temps as well not just the core.
open case and the fan blowing in is absolutely fine. no pets or kids in the house, right?

My 2.5 years old delidded 7980xe @ 4600mhz all core with 49ns memorylatency (4000c16 twekaed) is faster than 3950x max overclocked on water in every scenario. Pretty good for a ancient cpu
In gaming it has no chance vs my new 10900k @ 5400mhz and 4600c16 tweaked memory. ~35ns memorylatency.
