This fan configuration normal?

Very new to the custome pc build and had a questions about air flow configuration.
I have Corsair crystal series 460x and have three intake fans on the front, and push and pull liquid CPU cooler with radiator exhausting air out through the back. Is this set up good enough or recommend any other configuration?

CPU temp usually stays around 58c, give or take 5c degrees under load. Which seems normal according to some articles? (Using i7 7700k)

GPU temp stays around 65c (at 98-99%)(fan speed at around 30%) give or take 3c degrees. (Using GTX 1070 FTW)

Is it safe to assume the fan configurations are doing its job? Just by looking at GPU and CPU Temp??

Note: temps are based on playing ghost recon wildlands on high/ultra graphics settings.

  1. Looks good to me. However if you really want to know if you have good airflow, you should also look at motherboard temps. For example, in my current setup, the hottest point is at mobo VRM.

    How can I go about checking the mobo VRM temp?

    Currently using MSI afterburner to monitor temps(on display)
    Also have evga precision and speedfan to monitor temps.
    Any of those programs have display vrm temp display?

    And what is the safe temp for mobo vrm?

    I'm using HWMonitor, but it's not always accurate. Plus it does not tell you which sensor is tied to VRM. Best values can be seen in BIOS, but obviously you can't check there under load.
    As for safe temps, up to 100 C easily, but your target is to have same temp as CPU.
