I have no real idea how it got like this, but I can't even fix it. Looks cool though

Yes, but mine has a larger ram stick than yours.

Well.. it wasn't *really* 4GHz, so the temps kept around 40Deg.

Really, it was 200*10, but it thought it was 400*10, which is technically impossible.. even if I had the thing hooked up to LN2.

Had to clean my CMOS twice to fix the problem, but it's all fixed now.
