Why is my motherboard overheating? Could this be why I'm having issues?

I've been playing Destiny 2 on the lowest settings and can still hardly manage 60FPS consistently. I'm not sure what the problem is but I suspect it's the multiple monitor setup. I thought it would be my CPU slowing me down but apparently it's running fine. What do you guys think? Should my mobo be that hot? What can I do?

i'm going to be honest, i've never before seen that happen with a motherboard and the rest of your temps look fine too.

is the inside of your case filled with dust?

i'll take a look tomorrow, but i don't think so and don't see any reason why it would be.

in my experience dust will find its way in whether you want it to or not and the only thing i can think of off the top of my head is that you might have some clogged fans

Fans are clear, no dust, no wires. I let the computer cool down overnight, but when I turned it on this morning my mobo is still showing a 110 degrees.

I have a lot of things plugged into the USB ports and such, but that shouldn't be a problem because that's what the mobo is capable of, right?

It's most likely just a programming issue with Speccy. I would have noticed a burning hole in my floor if it was 110° celsius.

Still, it doesn't really explain why I can't get a consistent 60+ FPS on D2, 1080p on the absolute lowest settings.

Is this your first time running d2 or have you been playing it?

That's weird, some games are poorly optimized on different builds but if you weren't having problems before I'm not sure what's happening.

Any driver updates recently?

Yeah, pretty much. Every other game I can turn the settings down all the way and get rock-solid +60FPS.

Probably just poorly optimized then. You can check forums and stuff to see if anyone else has had this problem but unfortunately they're pretty hard to suss out unless you have a good understanding of your rig and its limitations.

Check if you can feel the temperature by hand.
Try different monitoring software (HWMonitor).
Check the temperature in BIOS/UEFI.
Check location of heat sensor (if there's none, it's just an invalid reading. if there is, it might be close to a component with an issue).
Check fan speeds.
Reapply thermal paste on CPU cooler.
Assume it's an incorrect reading.

How common is a faulty temp sensor? Could that be related to another fault that’s causing the frame rate issue?
