Motherboard Temperature too high?

I overclocked my 1045t to 3510mhz with 2080 mhz for the northbridge. The cpu voltage is at 1.35 (max 1.4) and i am currently getting temps of 16-20c idle and 36-40c when under full load. However when i run HW monitor or speccy it shows that my motherboard (cpusocket) is considerably higher.. 36-40c idle and 59-61c under full load.
I ran prime95 for 3 hours twice now with the same results each time: stable!

Question is: How can i lower my mb to slightly safer temps? (Asrock 990fx extreme3 currently using CM Hyper 212 evo) OR does it even matter?

Sorry, very new to overclocking.

Thanks.

  1. overheat mobo can damage chipset and that is little highest from review 990X mobo with 51Cmax, check ambient temperature .. or fix your air flow

    Ambient is very cool as its in my basement. Airflow is not a problem i have 8 fans in a 912 with most of the wires behind the mobo... you can feel the air being dispursed out the back and top and all my fans have 70+ CFM so they move alot of air.

    my new thought is to lower the voltage on the NB. what do you think?
  3. Anyone have a cooling suggestion for my asrock 990fx extreme 3 (for cpu socket on mb) ... bueller!?
