    Well, not outside, but away :p

    You could try turning your intake fans up a bit and see what effect it has if you're that worried. You maybe just getting some dead air in that area.

    I'm not worried about ~50c temperature. Electronics can all do prolonged operation at this temperature ...... unless your failure rate analysis says different?

    None the less, I turned up 2 fan's speed to ~650rpm and watched the Corsair SSD drop down to low 40's. GPU and CPU both dropped down to 40c.
    Increased system airflow in between red vertical lines. Corsair drive is the lower red line. upload_2020-10-30_14-32-9.png
    The lower green line is the SSD under GPU. Clearly it's not getting much airflow with GPU fan auto stopped. So moving it out is the best solution.
