Question Motherboard Running Hot(?)

I was looking at my temps the other day using Speccy and HWiNFO64 and it looks like my mobo may be running a little warm.

I have an 8700K paired with an MSI Z370 Gaming M5 and it idles at about 41C and up to 62C under load.

Are these temps ok? I have a couple of other systems in the same room and they idle at 32C and max temp is 44C.

I'm thinking it might be an airflow issue but I already have the maximum amount of fans that I can install in my case.

What are your other systems? If the 8700K is your most heavy system, it will naturally be hotter. Especially if there are overclocks etc. at play.

Generally I would keep my eye on CPU and GPU temperatures more than anything.
Generally motherboards handle the heat that comes from the CPU and GPU, and as long as they're not overheating, generally the motherboard won't be.

I wouldn't be concerned by those values, but again I would put more focus to the CPU and GPU.

"I have an 8700K paired with an MSI Z370 Gaming M5 and it idles at about 41C and up to 62C under load" Well within the safe temp zone!
I would worry when temps hit 75 to 80's
