I have 2 GTX1060s. One is single fan EVGA, the other is a dual fan Gigbyte. Both are overclocked to 2000 MHz. I currently have the fans cranked up to keep the temps down to the upper 60s C on the dual fan. The single fan runs between the upper 60s to as much as 72 C. What is a safe temp for 24/7 long term operation?

60 - 70C should be fine; normally from 80 onwards the GPU slows down a bit. Somewhere around 100 I think they even shut down. I would not test that one.
You can manually increase the fan speed to force the temps a bit down if you like.
