GA-EX58-UD3R Outrageous northbridge temps

Hey all. I recently noticed my UD3Rs northbridge temps are totally not acceptable. I noticed it first in BIOS and EVEREST
telling me it was idling at around 71c, and higher if i was playing a game. (I first noticed this at a LAN, where EVEREST was warning me about its temperatures. I didnt beleive it at all, so i used a friends laser thermometer, and touched the Gigabyte heatsink with my hand. After physically burning the tip of my finger, and reading the temp from the thermometer, it was correct. 65.56C. I know this is not normal. Is there anything i can do to resolve this? The PC itself is in a well ventilated area, and there are several chassis fans in place. Help?
