Side exhaust fan looks dirty.
Is there a front intake fan and is it dirty also?
PSU fan dirty also?
Any updates or upgrades done just prior to all this starting?

I just installed this motherboard. There were driver, hardware, and windows updates that I installed for the mobo, BIO's, graphics cards drivers too. Yeah the rear fan is a little dusty, but the rest is very clean. How do I get the temperature of the mobo under control?

That is the problem. If MOBO is overheating that will normally indicate a air flow problem.
Can you tell me what wattage and amps you PSU is?
It should give you the information on the sticker on the PSU.

How much. if any, thermo paste did you use on the CPU and heat sink?
Is it a new CPU and heat sink?
Were the CPU and heat sink clean of residue?

The CPU and heat sink are used from a previous PC. I did use thermal paste. I wiped off the CPU and heat sink with a paper towel dipped in rum since I had no isopropyl alcohol. I did not see any residue left over so I figured it was good. I put a small pea sized dot on the CPU and spread it on all areas covering the top of the CPU.

This will create an issue because the paper towel has fibers and the rum will leave a residue.

After reading the link, I understand I have not properly cleaned the CPU and heat sink. Additionally, I have incorrectly applied the thermal paste too heavily. The pictures were a big help in identifying this problem. I will correct these problems and post the result when I return home on Monday.
