Is my water temp OK?

Just finished putting together my first custom loop, and I'm a little concerned that my water temp might be getting too hot. Ambient temperature is around 24c and water temp after playing some games for a while hits 41c. My CPU and GPU both stay under 70. Is it normal for water temp to get that high above ambient?
I could ramp up the fan curve, but the whole point of the loop was to reduce noise after hearing the 2080ti turn into a jet engine under load. They are already a little louder than I would like.

My gear:
3700x cpu with ek supremacy evo block
2080 ti with ek vector block
EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM pump and res
EK-CoolStream PE 360 rad with vardar fans
Nemesis 240 GTS rad with corsair ml-120 fans
