Well, your GPU is getting pretty hot and may be thermal throttling. Bring up MSI Afterburner hardware monitor and see what your clocks, temps, and fan speed do over time. See what your CPU numbers look like, too, in case the cooler isn't seated properly or if the thermal paste is bad. That's where I'd start.

i set my 7 noctua fans 140 to silent and a d15 noctua cpu fan is that bad for a corsair 600q

91c just doesn't make sense in that setup. It should be getting plenty of air. My current setup has worse airflow than that and uses a blower style cooler on the gpu (also a 970), and under full load on F@H (which would be just as, or more, stressful than any game) it's only at 61c.

Were you changing just the Noctua case fan speeds, or did you change the GPU fan curve in MSI Afterburner too? The stock fan curve is so conservative, that it will only ramp up to 50% fan speed under full load. Change the curve to hit 100% between 70-80c and see if that helps your temps.

A few things that come to mind when i hear such high temperatures:

How did you setup your fans? Looking at the case, it would be best to blow in air from the front and bottom, and sucking it out in the back:

You can try to put on new Thermal Paste: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDLQ7FjPMf8
And rule of thumb with Thermal Paste: less is better.

Last but not least: It might be a production error that causes this, so if you still got warranty you might wanna try if you can get that replaced. I had once a GTX260 which caused unending heat problems and i ended up having to underclock it.

Gaming can use 120% power, folding generally doesn't go above 80


Regardless, this still sounds higher than normal for 'full speed'
