Default Temperature problems? 16GB RGB Pro 3600 DDR4

Hi everyone and thanks in advance for your time and advice.
I've just built a new Corsair heavy system.
Case is Icue 465x with an additional 3 LL120 RGB fans.
My issue is that my RAM temps seem high.
They sit at idle or just web surfing at around 54C but for example when I run a game like Control or BF5 they peak at 82 and generally sit at least mid 70's with fans running 100 percent.
CPU temp is ok, GPU temp is ok.
Motherboard is an ASUS TUF Gaming x570 Plus Wifi
I have the three fans at the front blowing into the case. Two on the top I've had exhausting or blowing, makes no difference and the rear fan is always exhausting.
I've tried disabling software control in Icue and I've tried with Icue on in the background, or closed down.
I enable to XMP in bios to make it recognise at 3600 and the voltage is 1.35
Also temperatures are being recorded in MSI Afterburner, and I've updated the firmware for the memory in ICue.

Any ideas please? This temperature must be too high surely?

It seems high to me (assuming this isn't Fahrenheit). It is drastically different than my Dominator RGB packed 4 tight. The 465x is not so big that there is a huge distance between top fans and RAM. That should be all you need to keep temps well inside normal levels. Those do not seem normal.

1) I don't see RAM temp in my Afterburner monitoring choice list. Can you verify these temps in iCUE?

2) I would like to see some temp data from other Vengeance Pro owners. I know they are a bit warmer than the Domiantor heat sink, but the only other time I have seen someone report those temps was in the middle of that absurd European heat wave last Summer. Record room temps lead to record system temps. This seems unlikely at the moment, but give us a general room temp and case ambient temp if possible.

3) Related to the above, GPU heat coming off the backplate is a real factor. However, it should not be at idle. Just be aware of this possibility when examining data.

Hi, I don't have any "Vengeance" modules, but I do have 32gig (4x8) of the Dominator Platinum RGB modules (3600MHz) and they sit at 35 degrees Celsius according to iCUE.

Anyway I'm thinking 54C (Celsius) is a bit too high for RAM modules.
