GPU Hotspot problem with my new Sapphire AMD RX 6600 XT Pulse 8GB

Go to solution Solved by SkilledRebuilds,

Not too much...

But not ideal.

 

I'd repaste it just to be sure the factory paste job isn't the cause,I dropped 4*c on 2080Ti from factory paste to good stuff.

 

Their coverage might be lacking and I'd repaste it.

I noticed that my gpu hotspot seems pretty high after playing Apex Legends for about 20-30 minutes.
I recently bought a RX 6600 XT so it's not a dust problem and neither is an airflow problem as my case has 4 fans and a mesh front panel.
I will attach a screenshot from GPU-Z with the max values recorded from the sensors and a picture of my build.

Is 102 °C hotspot temperature too much for this gpu ?

it's normal for the hotspot temp to be pretty high, technically this is within spec. But, its not good.

Thanks for the advice but i am 100% sure that i would lose my warranty if i break the warranty void stickers (i live in Romania and these are the rules here...)

Should i consider sending it to warranty for a repaste ?
