Unhappy Intel S5000XVN overheating

Okay so my server board is overheating. It's been having these symptoms for a while so I downloaded PC Wizard on it to see the approx. temperature of the hardware.

Dual Xeon 3.0ghz CPUs are running well at decent temperatures.
RAM is always hot even though I have a fan almost directly on it sucking hot air away and heat spreaders.

Hard drives are at a perfect temperature.

Says the motherboard is running at 233 degrees F. That seems impossible since it is semi-cool to the touch.

I am using Intel Server Chassis SC5299BRP Tower case.

Server shuts down after about an hour. I'm really having trouble diagnosing the problem. Can anyone give me some suggestions? Is it possible that the motherboard is faulty? Or that there's not enough airflow in the case? Any help is greatly appreciated.

try to replace the thermal compound and maybe the not enough ariflow to cool down the parts inside the case. have you tried to open the case whilst its running?

I did replace the thermal compound and I have tried to run it with the case open and my door open with 60 degree air blowing on it .

I think your sensor is wrong. Does it say different in BIOS?
