If the temp is 70-84°C then that is too hot!

Where did you get the reading from? If it is GPU temp then it is fine.

If it is on the board then it is CPU or system temp! Check in bios it has a health or H/W monitoring tab.

if it's health its the board temp and if it's the H/W it's the CPU?how does it go exactly?

It should be listed CPU temp and system temp!

I have a 790FX-GD70 as my second box. That display on the board IS CPU temperature. And I agree, that's really BAD!
