Although GPU is still will with in its normal operating temperatures I was just wondering it this a normal occurrence.
Yes it is normal. The temperature of a processor will be some value above the ambient temperature. Increase that ambient temperature by putting something radiating heat nearby will increase the temperature of the processor.
When cooling multiple heat generating sources in a computer, the best design is to have independent air flows to cool each heat generating component. You don't want the hot air being blown of one component to cool another if you can avoid it.
