Return the motherboard
Or expect to see some problems down the road particularly with the VRMs/MOSFETs. They will fail trying to push 125W, maybe over time, but they can and will. Especially if you overclock. Even more especially if you get a new tower cooler which instantly triples the danger due to no air getting to mobo.

Could've probably gotten a more decent mobo at that price anyway...
