Depends, without knowing your rooms ambient temp and your case cooling, nobody can answer that question.

Obviously if it's in a mini-itx case and it's 80f it's going to run much hotter than a case with good cooling and a room that's 72f.\

Ambient room temps is the single most influential factor in cpu/gpu temps. Next is case cooling.

The max safe temp could be around 105 C or 220 F for GPUs. Exceeding this limit may cause severe damage.
