CPU temperature is excellent considering gaming use. (What heatsink are you using and what case is it all fitted into? It is important to the rest of this reply.)
Motherboard seems hot although not incandescent but a true result from a probe on the Northbridge would be a better place to start.
Anyway - from the link here > < the NB cooling system seems entirely passive (I know vapour change is involved but something needs to get rid of the heat that is being passed along the line). And if the CPU heatsink is directly warming the end of the NB heatpipe - well you can guess the result!
Yes, I suggest you initially try temporarily fitting a lazy fan that directly cools the end of the heat pipe heatsink ... AND that it exhausts any hot air out of the case. Not easy given the layout???

Cheers, Ray
