    are you serious about getting this stuff? that's thousands of dollars worth of equipment there, buddy. and yes, it would make one hell of a machine.

    i would've gone with the turbo cool 510atx power supply, two 1GB sticks of low-latency corsair ram. you'd better have damn good power surge protection on there.

    these are all i have to say about possible changes, but you should really take what i said about surge protection to heart. you'd be sad if all that hard-earned money was wasted when $50 wasn't spent on a surge protector.

    either way, you've got one hell of a computer. you should enjoy it for years to come.

    I'm pretty sure your motherboard is not overheating, I have seen a lot of other motherboards with normal operating temperatures around 120 F. Hope that helped.

    those sensors can't be too trusted. did your board come with any monitoring software?
