After upgrading my Slylake based GA-Z170-HD3P machine from Mojave, my board PCH temps rose to 72c, then locking into 127c after.
Also finding that plugging in a USB drive for 10 minutes or so, the drive would be warm to the touch after unplugging.

Temps in MacOS:

Temps in Windows on the same machine:

I am hypothesizing that perhaps that Mac OS's chipset drivers that might be the cause of the problem as the board never got this hot in Mojave or even Windows.

If its of any help, I have the above mentioned board, i7-7700, 16gb of dual channel 2666 ram, MSI Armor RX580. Clover and Mac OS lives on a separate SSD, Windows in another.
