So I tested the temp with the digital thermometer just under the GPU and there's about 1C difference compared to outside air. Sometimes it went a little over 1C difference but not by much. Tested while running Furmark and also with a game.
I actually improved cable management and re-organized the hard drive so that the front intake fan isn't obstructed as much then took off the bays that are empty. It lowered the general operating temperature of the GPU by 4-5C so that's a plus. Though I would still like to lower it even more. Could it be the GPU thermal paste that needs changing?
