maybe my local PC shop wasn't as good as I thought, the mother board, PSU and CPU don't seem well matched.
It's hard to say if the Software monitoring of the PSU is accurate. I've had it show sub 10v reading on many quality power supplies (Corsair, Seasonic, etc)
I've haven't ran into an issue where the Package Temps were inaccurate under load, but that's not to say they are in your case, but 200+ Celsius on the Package is pretty alarming IMO.
It does look like a wrong reading seeing as your temps are much lower on avarege. You should fill your your Rig Builder though. That will give those trying to help the full picture.
You might not need to get a whole new rig as long as you have a decent enough Power Supply. The Gigabyte 970-UD3 are great budget boards with 8+2 Power Phase for Overclocking and the Asus M5A97 is pretty decent too, with 4+2 Power Phase it'll even get a decent OC with an 8 Core
Then get a Phenom II or Athlon II to throw in that other board and sell it to a friend lol.Edited by ComputerRestore - 9/11/13 at 6:32am
