Geforce 970 getting too hot?

I recently got one of these with a geforce 970 and no matter what fan profiles or power settings I do in MSI Afterburner it's always in the 80s, normally 80-83. Also it throttles down to 1050mhz and stays there. Would it be worth my time to open up the case and make sure that the cooler is still on right or maybe repaste the GPU or do these computers just run hot because of the small case?
