As already written, this is more or less the same GPU.
So if in doubt, you can overclock the RX480 properly and have an RX580. Although I don't know whether AMD has built in any limits, since quite a few people simply flash their RX480 to an RX580 (which I would not recommend)

So either keep the RX480 or get a faster card, not just a relabeled one.

60 ° C is nothing for a GPU, with some cards the fan even starts at 65 ° C.
