I'm worried about the temps of my new 7950 Vapor-x. Running furmark in burn-in mode for 10 mins reaches to 84C and running Unigine Heaven 5 times reaches to 80C. The ambient are a little bit hot here, ~28C but anyways it seems to high for me. Are this temps safe?

No they're not. If it starts to go above 70C it starts to throttle. Did you overclock it? Either:

a. Downclock it
b. Increase fan speed
c. Get water cooling
