Also, I played around a bit to see if the NB would be ok with less NB core volts, and I've been able to shave off about 3-4c. The NB core volts definitely affect the NB core temps. CPU-NB doesn't affect the NB core temps, it seems, at all, only the CPU temps.
That's correct Marc!
The NB Chipset temp sensors measure the temps of the NB Chipset on the motherboard, therefore if one raises the NB Chipset volts it will thus raise the NB temp senors readings (Which is on the motherboard) and won't affect the CPU's Temps and vise versa.
As a side note, I'm not sure but it seems that rasing the CPU-NB volts will not only affect CPU ambients and CPU Core temps but the motherboard temp sensor shows an increase as well!

EDIT: I think there's something wrong with my mobos hardware monitors. Since I got this board, the only temp sensors that work are CPU, GPU and HDDs. I don't get PSU info or other mobo related temps... Anyone have any insight into that? Am I just missing a driver?
That sounds sweet, I can't wait to see the difference. Make sure that you take note of the setting on the BIOS 1.7 while testing and set 1.84b BIOS settings the same.
I don't even use HWmonitor. I think that a good part of are using Lavalys Everest Ultimate 5.3
being that it reports more accurate temps and more data all together.
Try that if you will, it may be more beneficial for you.
