You'll be fine, don't worry.

I would personally have bought a different power supply. You can easily find quality power supples with more power for less than the one you bought.

Take this Xigmatek for example.

The Corsair will do just fine. It's an excellent power supply and very reliable. It has plenty of power and supplies 54A across the three 12V rails which should be more than enough for your system.

GPU2 fan idles at 24% and the temperature is around 54c

Now i was looking at the temps when i was gaming and the second gpu reaches around 80c and was wondering if its to high?

80c under load is pretty normal.
