Download GPU-Z and tell us the temp while you're gaming.
Also, link your card.

What's the airflow in your case like? 90C is a bit high for my liking, could shorten the cards' life.

It's very high for a dual fan card, take a look at your card and see if the fans are spinning properly, also try to touch the heatsink with your hands and see if it's extremely hot.

Fan is running properly as when it is on full load, fan runs too fast and creates lot of noise.

I reckon it's a badly placed heatsink on the graphics card. Quite a common problem. Lots of manufacturers seem to be plagued with this problem. Some buyers get unlucky and get a card with a badly placed heatsink. This causes heat build up and the fans spin up to attempt to counteract the heat.

Around 65-70C
I thought you could figure a way.
Try to blower it from dust, send it back if it's in warranty.

the fins on the heatsink are quite closely packed so there's a good chance it is just clogged up with dust.
