I would ask what type cooling fan are you using on the APU. I know that I have an after market Cooler Master fan. The stock fan caused high temp with my A10-5800K. 

If you have access to thermal paste I would clean and reapply the thermal paste. Not hard to do just need some rubbing alcohol, coffee filters and thermal paste. Use the coffee filter (non static cloth) with rubbing alcohol to remove old paste. Be sure to clean the top surface of APU and the bottom portion of the cooler. Allow to air dry and then apply a pea size drop of thermal paste to the middle of the APU surface. Place your cooler fan back in place. It will take a few days for the paste to cure.

If after that you still having high temps get online and get an after market cooler.

Nice looking rig but what about the thermal paste question. Did ou install the AXP-200 or did it come already installed?

From a large local APU forum,  I found out that -

There is no temp monitoring software that can accurately provide APU temp

CPUID HWM is probably the closest you could get to real temps.  You just need to know how to read it

 

In CPUID HWM -

Under your mobo group TMPIN0 is actually the systm temp,  TMPIN2 is the CPU core temp

Under the A10-xxxxK,  ignore the Package temp as it is not meaningful.  I have mine at 90C+
