Thanks for the quick reply there. I have uninstalled Ai Suite 3 (and everything along with it on the list there) after checking the temps with Real Temp 3.7 and used the cleaner after. I am still receiving CPU Over temp errors upon boot until I have BIOS ignore the temperatures. It will still shoot right up to 89 and sit right there and not move. These are my temperatures in Windows after allowing it to sit idle for maybe 3 minutes on my desktop. Had some issues getting the website to accept my screenshot, so while I messed around with Imgur the temperatures have dropped about another 10 degrees while resting. While still considerably high for no load whatsoever, it seems slightly better except for the fact that it really likes 89 degrees.
I have also since tried again resetting CMOS and loading default settings repeatedly after running the cleaner to make sure everything is truly gone. My BIOS does still read that it is trying to get my processor to run at 4200 MHz, but it may have always been that way, and I just overlooked it back in November. I take it the next step would be to reseat my cooler, and of course reapply thermal paste?

It is not my intention to sound condescending, as I have no idea of your experience with PC building, but did you remember to remove the protective film on the back of the cooler heat transfer plate?
However I uninstalled the software, and ran the software cleaner, both of which did not seem to change the CPU temps at all.
When a new serie of maximus comes out on the market, you have to wait 1 year to 18 monthes to get a real, well-working, BIOS version.
I would say 8-10 monthes is the minimum to get a reliable system. Before this, you will have to use Acronis software a lot.
