Have you checked fan curve of the GPU? Could be that the automatic fan curve is messed up, you can set a custom fan curve using MSI Afterburner, see if that spins the fan up, and if it does, you can use that setting to have your GPU fans spin up when the GPU gets hot. But you'll need to always have MSI Afterburner running in the background and on windows startup.
