80-84C on load is COMPLETELY NORMAL.
Absolutely. Lots of cards have been running higher temps than that for years, some over 90c (ie, AMD 290/290x reference), many 24/7 during the mining boom. The problem though with Nvidia cards (and AMD) in the 80c+ range is that this reduces the boost and may not get best performance as a result.

Yep, triple fan, though it was a used card, I presume the prior owner burned it out mining litecoin. I RMA'd it a few times for being unstable because it would crash about once an hour while gaming, on average, even if I underclocked it. The first RMA replacement was even less stable. RMA'd it again and that second RMA had obvious burn marks on it. RMA'd it a 3rd time and got one that looked decent so I sold it to a miner. Each RMA took a few weeks of not having a good graphics card and having to pay return shipping so it was pretty annoying. Maybe if I was the original owner it would have been a better experience. But they didn't make the RMA very enjoyable either.
My first Gigabyte card was a GTX 670 Windforce 3X OC 4GB which was really good. So I got a GTX 970 G1 Gaming afterwards which was an amazing overclocker. 1535Mhz core while bearly reaching 70°C on the auto fan curve. Not the quietest but still really good.
So naturally I decided to buy a Gigabyte 1080 Ti Xtreme Gaming, thinking it would be good. Well, I was wrong. Hitting 84°C stock no OC on a massive 1KG triple fan cooler that sagged like crazy, but even worse crashes to desktop with factory OC mode enabled. First RMA later, I got a brand new one that hit 86°C and also crashing as well as a crazy artifact show. Another RMA later I got a third card that, supprise supprise, did the same. Third RMA was a new card I immideatly sold for more than I paid. Thanks mining boom XD
Never heard from the buyer so it might have been fine. But after that I´m never tou-ching a Gigabyte card again.

And in your country you do not have a law, which entitles you to return an item, in the first 14 days or 30 after the purchase ?
(Like amazon doing or others shops)

So the seller contacted me, they tested the card on 3 different systems and never got more than 75c on full load. They really wanted it to fail to give me another one, but they couldn't.

I will be selling it as I got an Asus 2060 OC that works great. I seem to have no luck with Gigabyte products.
ASUS really does a good job on their gpu coolers. Mine has only gotten better now that I upgraded to a Phanteks Evolv X case.
I'm surprised how good it really is.

I was playing some games the other night for a while and never got over 46c! I was pretty impressed with that.

It's like they didnt listen to a single damn thing you said.
Add me to the list as well. I will not be buying anything from them.

I said for other users of same card, not about you. If they fix temperature issue, I wanna know it.

The only way you can work around this issue is:
a) replace the card with a new one with proper cooler (still card is in spec, if Gigabyte says it's faulty request
b) bruteforce airflow with new and better cooled case

You said you've reached 75C on 1050 Ti, which is already high even for a cheapo card. I've had 660 from MSI (Twin Frozr but still) that never went above 67C in my super cheapo Tacens Signum case which provides virtually no airflow from the front (still I have stock intake fan and a 120mm in the back). I'm running 1060 6GB for over a year now in the same case and reach similar temperatures so I don't know what kind of internal layout problems or ambient temperature you need to have to run into such issues.

Add pictures of your internal case layout.

Regardless of option a) or b) you won't solve it without spending extra money. Optimal route would probably be combining a) with b)

There's also option c) which is: enable Vsync and lock your games to 60 fps.

I said but I didn't replace thermal paste for 1,5 year. Later I replaced paste, It reached 65C in the same case. I think that it is Gigabyte's fault. Maybe I will try if Consumer Rights don't accept.

What will you say? That you can get the card to run cooler so its a bad product? I can get any piece of hardware to run cooler than out of the box. That's not really something that will get you anywhere...

If the card runs in spec, again, you haven't got a chance. The area where it gets 'debatable' is performance reduction due to temps, which gets pretty heavy above 84C. So, a card that cannot properly stay below that, even with max fanspeed, could be considered as a bad product. This is the gray area you have, use it well, its all about making your point in the best possible way. And that does not mean sending your first email with an exhaustive list of arguments. Get your complaint escalated first so it gets real attention (not first line) and thén start talking.

First email contact should include:
- The card does not meet the expectations that (insert company) created.
- The card objectively loses performance at its 'typical' operating temperature at full load. The temp is too high, so the performance loss is consistent.
- The amount of performance lost in typical operation creates a situation where the card provides lower performance than you see in reviews and comparable GPUs from other brands.

Second part:
- Kindly ask for a solution and for (insert company) to show they have the customers' interests at heart, like they say they do.
- Be clear about the fact that you expect a solution. Not 'want', or 'demand'. Expect. Make it sound like pure logic, not opinion.
- Be clear that since you expect a solution, not getting one will result in you escalating the matter. In what way, remains to be seen, but social media is a good one to mention. Also paint the picture of the opposite end: if a satisfactory solution is offered, you'd be the first to tell the world (insert company) is doing a good job.

This is my general approach with these gray areas (and I bite every single one I come across, and usually come out winning). Be clear, to the point, and show you mean business. That means: cut out every bit of emotion, make it solely about the agreement you have with company and it not living up to that. Emotion is weakness.

I solved the problem by selling my Gigabyyte RTX 2060 Windforce OC and getting EVGA RTX 2070 XC :) .... High temps were normal according to the company and when running fans at 90-100% the card didn't go above 79c .... according to the company 80-84c is safe, fine, and within specs but not for me as i am accustomed to running my cards @65-70c range.... All in all the card never gave me a problem running at 79c nor any performance issues.... i would have kept on using it but i wanted to upgrade....

46c? that's because the the game wasn't very demanding. While ASUS GPUs are top quality, they're not that good:) Try something like Metro Exodus on high, you'll get instant 72c+

OP still don't showed us the case. Pretty much sure that this is the problem here even if the cooling solution from manufacter is not the best possible. Gigabyte isnt a great videocard manufactor anyway. I have one.

Nope. Low 60s with rtx on. Boosting up to 2.1ghz and creeping on 190w. And the thing is it can actually do better. The second "quiet" bios runs warmer. But either way I brought the fan curve way down. Running stock it wont hit 60 on that game.

Just to be that guy. :D

Nope, i tried 2 cases. I went 2 times to go PC Enthuasist. He thinks same with me.

You have to live with the elevated temperature until you get better airflow.

I just Google'd your card and most people are getting up around 70 to 75c under load with that Gigabyte card. While 80 to 84c is within specs, like you I'd see if you could get it down that 10c just because cooler equals longer life for PC components.

i have the same issue .the problem on heat sink don't waste your time the only thing you have to do

set temp limit to 65 and curve fan to max 75% v sync on .... temp 74-78 with no noise .
Of course you will lose some of the performance (1800 mhz of 1950) But there is no solution to this problem now

I have noticed that some games do not have high temperature

That heatsink doesn't look particularly bad for a 160W mid-range GPU.
