just how concerned about GPU temp of 80-82 would you be?

    oh ok. but they never used the 8xx series on desktops officially and i believed it was due to the laptop GPUs having temp issues.

    It was because there was no space left in the 700M series numbering scheme for the new Maxwell 1 parts, so they had to move up to 800M, while desktop simply slotted them into 750/750 Ti. The Kepler 800M cards had heat issues because they were pushed beyond the efficiency break point.

    I can't speak for laptop GPUs but I ran an EVGA 1060 6gb card in my desktop for months and it stayed at around 82C during heavy use. This was not the SC card which has a real copper heat sink. This was the lowest version that has just a basic aluminum heat sink wrapped in plastic shroud, and could not be overclocked because of that. However, it ran like a top at that temperature and I still have it today in my family PC (upgraded to a 1080 Ti in the gaming PC.)

    Before repasting and cleaning the fan my Kepler 750m reached temps up to 97C while gaming after over a year since the last cleanup and now its back in the 70C range. Its still hits around 80C at times but its still in the safe range. If 80C+ was really bad for a GPU my 750m would of died years ago.

    The XPS 9570 has a 1050 TI, when it was released and reviewed the throttle limit was 78c, now that is is post review season Dell has reduced the throttle point to 74c in a BIOS update. To make matters worse you can not downgrade past this BIOS due to a intel boot guard lock.
