Is 80-85 Degrees C* normal / healthy?

During a play session of Amalur: Reckoning, yesterday, I noticed that my prebuild was making a lot of noise and the case cover was hot to the touch. The Omen CC program informed me that my GPU temp was at a staggering 84 degrees.

Is that normal/healthy in the long run? Its a rebuild so I expect a certain level of quality in the product...

in fact yes, and no ..
If you play a more or less powerful game, which requires a lot of resources, the graphics card / processor components etc. will be very stressed, so its heating, the fans run faster.
The temperature you give is in this case not so high!
Only if you find that the case is hot, for a tower, I'm a little surprised ..
If the fans make a terrible noise, that is not normal either.
My computer is a bit old, it tends to make a little noise, but it can be heard a little if no sound ..
When the speakers are on, it doesn't have to be very loud either, to mitigate that.
If for you this is not enough, you will have to make a decision, return repair, or take back from the computer by the seller
