AMD A10-7870K APU with Wraith Cooler Running HOT? yes/no?

AMD A10-7890K APU with Wraith Cooler new build running at about 60 Thermal Margin (AMD) but Speccy and MOBO reporting up to 80C!

What are the stock specs, Voltage, Multiplier, etc? I'm wondering if it is 'accidentally overclocked' or some bios or other settings causing it to run hot.

Or should I not believe the Motherboard Bios temps or the Speccy app?

The AMD Overdrive App seems to be reporting much cooler temps.

I even removed the Wraith Cooler and applied some better CPU paste. Made no difference.

Where do I find all the stock specs like,

AMD A10-7870K Radeon R7, 12 Compute Cores 4C+8G

CPU Multiplier (currently set at 39x)

CPU VID Voltage (Currently set at 1.45V for all 4 cores)

NB VID (Currently set at 1.225V)

PCIe Speed (Currently set at 100Mhz)

HT Ref CLock (Currently set at 100Mhz)

Core Speed (Currently set at 3900 Mhz for all 4 cores)

CPU 0 (All 4 cores are the same)
