I have a xfx 5870 reference card, not overclocked..
it idles @42c.. and i tried doing a test with occt

I used 1024x768 resolution with max shader complexity 8 and checked "error check"

I opened CPUID hardware monitor to check the temps, and after 1 min, the temps jumped to 83c, so i stopped it..

is that normal?
also, what is the max safe temps for this card?

Yes, that is normal, No you don't need to worry about it.

Admittedly it's a bit toasty, maybe a TIM replacement, or better airflow within the case. But my 5770 loads at about 73 OC'ed so I wouldn't be too concerned.
