I recently bought a gigabyte 1660 super oc twin fan and it is running hotter than average. I have an inno3d 1660super as well and it runs 8-10 degrees cooler. Is it bad cooler design or did I get a bad piece ?
Airflow is not the problem since my case has good intake and exhaust and I tested other 1660 super with it although not the same one as mine.

please suggest me which is good ?

Graphics card temperatures typically range from 40°C to 90°C.  Performance class graphics cards can reach high temperatures under heavy load.  The heatsink and fan assemblies on the graphics cards are designed to pull the heat away from the graphics card.  A case which does not have proper airflow can prevent the heat from escaping the graphics card.  Adding fans to your case which pulls cool air from the front of your case and drags hot air from the back of your case can help reduce the temperatures of your components inside of your PC.
