Question MSI Radeon 5700 XT high temperatures

Hi,

Whilst gaming the GPU temperatures 1 and 2 (recorded on MSI afterburner) peaked 88 and 112 degrees Celsius respectively but ran only a few degrees lower on average. The temperature at rest is safe at around 35-40 degrees Celsius. In case it is important I was playing No Man's Sky on high graphics settings. The CPU temperature is safe at around 60 degrees Celsius during gaming. Should I be worried about the GPU temperature values?

My current cooling is as follows:
I have 2 fans in the front (Noctua NF-A14) pulling air into the case, and 1 case in the rear (A 140mm Corsair fan bought in 2015 I don't remember the model) pushing air out the back.
The case is an NZXT 440 - I have heard that this may be poor for temperature regulation, if so, may someone confirm this as I am willing to buy a new case if necessary.
The CPU cooler is a Noctua NH-U12S and has a fan on the front side of the heat sink pushing air towards the back of the PC.

Steps I've tried in order to reduce the temperature:
I have tried making the GPU and case fan curves higher in MSI afterburner and Gigabyte's System Information Viewer respectively. The GPU fans became particularly noisy, but I am willing to accept that if I know the temperature is safe. Here I saw little difference in temperature although it may be due to my lack of experience.
I have taken both the front and side panels off - this resulted in a temperature decrease of around 5 degrees.
I have moved the internal cables so that they are not blocking airflow - this also resulted in little difference in temperature.

I'll be glad to give any other information needed to answer the question.
Thanks in advance.
