That's quite hot but not toooo bad. I would get an aftermarket cooler. Just to help a bit.

If your chassis allows get a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo. They are cheap and provide good performance.

+1 for the hyper 212 evo.

Anthing near 80 is a bit hot really. 70 is the absolute max I would ever want to see.

Ivy runs pretty hot. So 80 is fine, but yeah, borderline comfortable. LOL. With Ivy I get very nervous above 85...
