New GTX 1080ti High Temps!

Hi guys. I just bought EVGA GTX 1080ti SC2 and for some reason I get around 79 - 85° when I play games like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Far Cry 5. I understand that this is not going to harm the gpu since it was designed to handle this temp but I watched some videos of people playing the same game, same settings and same exact gpu but never even exceed 70° (65 - 68° most of thtime r time). So why do I have significantly higher temp? I even tried to set a curve for my fan where the speed reaches 70% and higher when the temp reaches 75° still nothin much! I'm starting to doubt it is my case airflow that is wrong or something although it should be fine based on what I know. Here is my rig info:

Case: Raidmax Sigma
GPU: EVGA GTX 1080ti SC2
CPU: Intel Core I7-8700k
Motherboard: Asus Maximus X Code
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X62
PSU: Silverstone 700W

The case has 3 front intake 120m fans, 1 back exhaust 140m fan came with the case, and the NZXT Kraken fans that are placed on top as exhaust. So that makes 3 intakes and 3 exhaust total. Is there a problem with how fans are oriented?

Note: I have no temp probs with CPU at all it never exceeded 55°. It is just the GPU that has high temps.

Please help :(

  1. Install EVGA XOC and set the fan profile.

    Thanks for the quick reply. If by profile you mean to set the fan curve then I already did as I mentioned but it did not make a noticeable difference.
