Indeed, I meant GPU TIM.
With system at full load having air 1c warmer than room is very good. I'm happy when it is 3c or less above room with both CPU & GPU at full load. So if airflow into GPU is less than 3c above room ambient it would behard to get lower temps un.less the TIM is bad, GPU cooler fans are bad or GPU cooler is dirty.
