It's still normal...
Just make sure it doesn't reach above 90'C. :)

they can hit 110c+ and still work fine, although if you do break 100c i would recommend better cooling

there are a lot of options
add an extra fan
better cable management in a case for airflow
use better thermal paste and re-seat the the cpu/gpu heatsinks
upgrade coolers for the cpu/gpu heatsink

unless you want to push overclocking or your PC is having issues due to overheating, I would not go crazy about cooling. Often an extra fan and cable management will do the trick for a stock PC & parts.
