Remove the CPU and check inside the socket for heatsink goblins. Sometimes they come infested with them from the factory. Clean the CPU and heatsink mounting surfaces, reapply thermal grease, reinstall the heatsink, and see what happens. Usually that makes the heatsink goblins go away.

Hi there
Yep there is NO problem with the board! My temps jumped 10+ degrees after upgrading from my old gigabyte board to the 8rda3+, just the way they measure temps is different thats all. Everyone here comparing how low their temps are and half of them are false! So before you start worrying about someone with an abit or asus board with the same spec but lower temps, their actual cpu temp is probably the same as yours, even lower! Take case and cpu temps with sceptesism, if its not crashing all the time, your temps are fine.
