At times, that is native on the OS...and other times I run VirtualBox and VMWare player...with multiple VMs running.

Usually also streaming something.

4GB is actually tight...and when you are running VMs, you cannot have enough memory.
Ahh yeah I have friends who do alot of VMs and they need ALOT of RAM...they say 8 is the min 16 is nice and more if possible lol

Infact ive been having alot of annoyances from Probe II:

[07/28/2011 at 05:02 pm] Vcore 0.016 Abnormal
[07/28/2011 at 05:02 pm] Vcore 1.200 Normal

[07/28/2011 at 05:12 pm] +5V 5.240 Normal
[07/28/2011 at 05:16 pm] MotherBoard -8.0 Abnormal
[07/28/2011 at 05:16 pm] Chassis fan 2 689 Normal
[07/28/2011 at 05:21 pm] MotherBoard -6.0 Abnormal
[07/28/2011 at 05:57 pm] +12V 0.000 Abnormal
[07/28/2011 at 05:57 pm] +12V 12.096 Normal

My power supply is a Corsair HX650 so I dont think that its really doing these Abnormal Voltages Probe II seems to be reporting and whats with this -0*C temps?
Are you running any other software that reports temps such as AIDA64 or TruTemp? If so, you are getting a conflict. AISuite doesn't play nice with other software. After getting my OC set I usually disable AISuite and use AIDA64 since it also reports my other temps. I don't think I have ever had a ROG board that did not have this issue, the software has never worked properly when other software is being used.

The other thing that could be causing it is if your OC is not completely stable, low voltage for instance. It's more annoying than anything.

@Scuba Steve
8GB is the bare minimum I would recommend today. For a few reasons.
-DDR3 is SOO cheap right now.
-4GB just doesn't cut it anymore. I only had 4GB in my last build (which is an awesome build as well) but ram was actually my bottleneck in gaming. I was playing through Crysis Warhead and I was at about 98% ram usage. I don't know about you but I like to have some headroom. Especially if I am keeping my build for 4 years or so.

Also, I think you mentioned you were going to get a 2400 with intent to overclock?
You won't get very far with that chip if you do.
Sandy Bridge overclocking is multiplier based. the 2400 has a very limited multiplier so you would probably be stuck overclocking your base clock of 100mhz to about 103 or 105 if you are lucky.
If you really want to overclock get a k series sku like the i5 2500k as it has an unlocked multiplier up to like 57 or something like that. (In theory able to go as high as 5.7Ghz or so.)

Speaking of overclocking, I typed my batch number for my 2600k in google and there's a guy boasting about his 5.7GHz OC. *Crossing fingers* for a good chip.

I've done it. I don't know if I should have. When I was modding my case, my **** sat assembled and running on top of the motherboard box on my desk's top shelf. It stayed that way for three weeks (I was very lazy about finishing the case). Your mileage may vary. Don't try this at home. Or at least don't blame me if you **** it up =D

EDIT: I just remembered. I had an old school DOS box running without a case for like two years, wayyyy back in the day...before I discovered DOSBox . It worked fine.

I just noticed the 8pin power connector on the board has that thing blocking 4 of the pins, what's the deal with that? I saw someone mention this a few pages back but I can't find it.
