And you know what? I just took a look with more attention on your case photo and if you are up to, do a crazy test: turn your front fan OFF and run the benchmarks, with my fan curve applied on your card.

My case is way bigger than yours so my front fans are a good 20cm away from the card.
So thinking it was too far, I installed a fan very close to the card, much like the distance you have, and my temps GOT WORSE.

I don't know why, maybe the air turbulence / flow started to interfere with the second fan of the card, or interfered on how the heat from the VRM sections should be blown to the backplate and not blown into the cores direction, I just know that my temps raised a good 5 or more degrees.

It wont hurt doing this test.
