No it's not good, motherboard temp should be around the same as other components more or less. Anything above 40C is alarming.

Check if your chipset cooler is getting dirty!

It has fanless heatsink and no heatpipe which means it is hotter than better cooled chipsets.

You might want to check the temp with another utility just to double-check.
AMD chipsets do tend to run hot so maybe it's nothing.

If the temp doesn't go down, it's highly likely that the thermal paste on the chipset heatsink needs to be reapplied. Good luck.
