...it's a hybrid gaming - productivity system rather than an ultra-cubed 3DM benchmark chaser...Still, Blender & Co can heat things up, never mind CP2077 and FS2020 (at least if you play it in a long session). VRAM stays in the mid-60 C with those, what with a water-cooled GPU front and a TT Core P8 'max airflow' case. That case also has another system in it with a 6900 XT (that one for daily work / productivity plus a bit of gaming), and that card is incidentally nibbling on the 3090 Strix OC GPU results in TimeSpy...But DLSS and Ray Tracing titles are a different matter...@J7SC those ambient temps are fine, what's it like under your average gaming load? For example my VRAM under gaming load maxes out around 74ish C, which is absolutely fine and well within parameters, using the EKWB passive backplate, so I have no urge to move to the Active. If yours are similar I wouldn't worry about it unless you're really chasing those ultra ultra 3D mark scores.
