I get very high GPU temperatures (above 80*C), particulary on Wreckfest menus and not in-game.
Is this normal?
I struggled with this same issue before December Update too. Tried enabling VSync as suggested by my friend, but temperatures very quickly rise above 80*C
In-Game temps are a bit lower and rarely pass 75C.
Any suggestions?

I don't have a program for watching temps, but I can tell from the fan speeds how hot it's getting, and yes the fans get some more rpms in the menus.
GPUs can handle above 80 without a problem, you shouldnt worry too much. (unless you manage leave the game menu open for 1 week lol).
I think it's got to do with FPS not being limited in the menu and your gpu going crazy, like in many other games

Monitor your framerates (fps) with some progra like MSI Afterburner. Your vsync might not have been worked. Sometimes when the vsync doesn't work yor game is actually windowed and you need to press alt+enter (sometimes even couple times).

You can also frame cap the game with RivaTunerStatisticsServer if you don't want to use vsync.
