4. Cursed self for bricking the motherboard.
5. Realized that SATA RAID got turned off in BIOS
6. Turned SATA RAID back on in BIOS

8. Installed Phenom II X4 940 with HSF
9. Freaked out when new CPU was showing mid to upper 60 C at idle

11. Downloaded and installed Core Temp to get temps directly from the CPU
12. Checked temp again and Core Temp showed from 40's C (idle) to 50's C (load)

I'm on a Bike!

I just purchased a Trek 7100. It should be ready for pickup this week. I can't wait! Here's a picture so you can be jealous...



Hopefully, I will never be one of these guys...
