Intermitten Boot problems, help?

This computer: PC Chips mobo, corsair XMS 512X2 DDR2, AMD X2 AM2, Onboard video & sound & Nic When I restart this computer, it seems to have about an 80% chance to Hang (freeze?) Right after it detects my processor (but before it lists the hard-drive and CD roms) at the bottom it says press "DEL" to...

It suddenly for no reason started working. I 3dMarked this computer but used 3Dmark 06, which I guess is harder than 05, and got 3500marks or whatever, but i was above 50% of the other users so I guess thats not bad for 06. Ill get 05 and try it again. I had to run to work (where I am now) so I cant...

Im going to 3D mark this system next, its almost the same, SLI M2N mobo w/ 2GB corsair XMS 4-4-4-12 T2, AMD X2 4600+, Geforce 7600, it should do decent I would think. 3Dmark is still downloading 80% done atm.

Sandra benchmark thing works pretty good, this computer is doing good. Only thing is it just told me my mother board was nearly 100*C. I touched the Mobo in several places and if anything its room temp, where is the sensor for mainboard temp located? even the northbridge (i think) with the heat sink...

Well why dont you tell me what everyone likes to use to benchmark their systems, that can give me memory voltages and timings, and little things like that, system temp, and overall benchmarks I really dont know what to use for these things. Also, Is it safe or even smart to use this program "Ai Boos...

Oh sorry didnt think it mattered, it was 05 i think.

The system I built AFTER it is the one Im on now, I was going to use 3dMark 06 on it, but if they vary results ill stick to 05 i guess?

The one Im typing this on is a lot different of a computer, i built 2 at the same time.

Everything should be here in Short order. I could not find the RAM compatibility list for the Asus M2N Mother board I bought, I hope the Corsair memory works in it.. also I hope the RAM voltage can be turned up on the M2N to run the memory correctly, I hope it doesnt stop at like 1.95V or something.

Yeah lots of the 5-star reviews still got DOA memory but the 5-stars was from the memory they got after the RMA was done. Im considering this memory instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231087 Most of the 1 and 2 star reviews are either incompatibility issues or DOA, and...

Dumb question but, Say one type of memory is rated 1.8V @ 4-4-4-12 timing and another is 2.2V @ 4-4-4-12 timing What is the difference? Will the 1.8V live longer? be slower? Would I WANT to buy the lower voltage to benefit from increased ram life? And could it overclock faster because it uses less v...
