Are you monitoring the gaming temps real time? I doubt the games are using the CPU at 100% all the time. The temps in your screenshot are probably just a peak that it hit for a few seconds.

yes i do monitor in real time. the hottest core averages ~62c but it does hit the max temp frequently.

playing around in bios in an attempt to lower temps. what is there really to do? im trying high LLC with a 1.7V CPU PLL and medium current speed, but im still getting same temps and voltages required.

There is nothing wrong with the temps. They seem totally fine for the speed and voltage you are using. If you want lower temps either get better cooling i.e a custom loop or lower your speed and voltage.

You are obviously not happy with the temps even though everyone has told you they are fine several times. I suggest you just run the CPU at stock speed and drop the voltage right down.

Your Vid & Power Watts are quite low, you are letting the cores balancing from x16 to x45GHz. so it goes turbo on demand. Turn off CPU Spread Spectrum and you will have 4,5GHZ constantly, but you can also let the core balancing like that, it will use turbo when needed, therefore not heat cores too much.

owell didn't work. still need the same amount of voltage and therefore the same temps. darn. owel guess im stuck unless i get a new cooler or delid, but im not attempting that again. so its staying at where it is.

Patrick you are fretting about a non-issue really, the temps are fine. If you were getting over 90C with games or Prime I'd worry.
Actually what Paul said about setting it to stock values is a good idea, you won't notice any difference.

The other thing is my GPU and MSI afterburner. Everything works at boot except my custom fan profile. after i reboot or close AB the GPU reverts back to its "auto" state. anyone know how to enable custom fan curve at boot? or is it not possible without the program running?

The program has to run to enable the profiles.
