Is this temp too high? What can I do to lower it?

Sounds fine. Run a program like HWmonitor in the background while gaming. If the max temperature gets over 85 then that is a little warm. Over 95? Dangerzone.

If it doesn't go higher than 95C then don't worry about it.

You have a high voltage 470 probably.
's normal.

If you have hardware acceleration enabled on Firefox, that'll actually raise your temps.

You're probably not using MSI afterburner or evga precision or whatever other programs you can use to increase the fan speed.
