Exactly. As I mentioned in your other thread, 16GB can complicate things. The fact that it appears to be two kits of 1600mhz and not 1333mhz adds to the issue.
The data in the Rams X.M.P profiles contain not only the DRAM timings, but can also adjust the CPU multiplier etc to compensate. Disabling X.M.P doesn't always revert all it's changes.
The flow on affect is if you have left all voltage settings on auto (like the CPU voltage/vcore) then it's feasible that the X.M.P profile has also increased that as well, hence the higher temps. What does CPU-Z show your vcore @ idle and load?
Also, what does your DRAM voltage now show as? (idle vcore and DRAM can be found in the M.I.T section of the BIOS I believe. 'One kit' may be able to run 1333mhz @ 1.5v~. For 1600mhz, it may require 1.6v~. For both kits @ 1600mhz it might be 1.65v~ etc. More volts, more heat.)
The temperature increase sounds like it stems from increased voltages somewhere to compensate.
