Any help tips would be appreciated :) 

Those are very old parts! My first question is, did you put this together yourself RECENTLY?

If not, then I HIGHLY suggest changing out the thermal paste on your CPU and GPU. Thermal paste should generally be changed out every 2 to 3 years or when you are seeing high temps such as this. The reason is that the moisture dissipates from the thermal paste and starts to dry and crack and basically becomes cement, therefore, giving you extremely poor heat transfer.

As for the motherboard temp, I really don't know what part of the motherboard that is. I'm guessing it's the socket temp? The socket being where the CPU goes of course, so if you put on some new thermal paste on the CPU, the socket will cool down as well.

Hope this helps
