Wellcome to the forum!

 

The nothbridge is fine with 60°C, but your finger will get burned. Your hand is not a proper tool to measure the tmeperature. Use a measurement device or download HWmonitor and try to read out te temperature. But probably there in no sensor in the nothbridge.

 

EDIT: @Tylerm23 follow your topics.

Mineral oil and 40 kg aluminium heat sinks are a perfect combination: 73 cores and a Titan X, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Oil

Temperatures that are high to your body are normal when it comes to components that are potentially heavily loaded, like your Southbridge or Northbridge.

try to point a fan at the chipset heatsink

 

see if the temps drop

 

do note you need moving air around the CPU socket to cool the chipset and VRMs

Budget? Uses? Currency? Location? Operating System? Peripherals? Monitor? Use PCPartPicker wherever possible.
