Nice socket temps!! I cant understand how can i reach 62/63ºC on socket temp with only 1.325V on the cpu..
you been told why a few times..
you are using a 4+2 phase board..
so not many phases for the cpu to work with so it is likely pushing all 4 to the max.
Proper boards usually have at-least a 8+2 phase circuit, if they don't have 8 phases then it is a super high quality circuit (which your VRM circuit most defiantly is NOT)
the less phases a board has the more power each phase is responsible for, more power/electricity translates into heat quite effectively.
the hotter your VRMS get the hotter your socket will get.
if you don't take adequate precautions, you are left with your situation. you need airflow... LOTS of it if you are air cooling.
slightly positive air pressure is best (slightly more air blowing in then being pulled out)
get more fans, or turn yours up and get better cooling.. but you really would be better off with a proper motherboard.
