I saw the voltage holding steady but dont remember at this time what its value was, however the current to my cpu starting taking off and so did my temp. in a matter of about 10 seconds it climbed to almost 70c before it shut itself down (i was unable to shut it off quicker). Since i am a noob i dont know if the behavior of my current is how it should be or not. it seems odd that while the computer is not even booted that i would have such a high current draw which seems to trigger my heat spike? I'm not discounting what you have said but i dont know why suddenly my thermal compound would go bad, this rig has been running great for several weeks. If i'm missing something please explain, i'm trying to learn not criticize.
For anyone who is unfamiliar with the ROG connect i mentioned using here is a short video that will help

the current increased and then leveled off? what was that amount? try reattaching the heatsink it sounds like it is not on there right

i dont remember the range on the chart it showed but i never noticed it level off. At first i thought it was not reading because it didnt even show up until after it shut off and came back down

These above pictures aren't mine (I was at work and bored while I did this)
But they are pretty close to what my CPU looked during and as the finished product. Although mine is a lot smoother and mirrored finished

Finally got to test my Lapped Bulldozer. (actually testing it right now) Prime95 - 4.6Ghz - 1.4v (reading from CPUZ - Bios is set to 1.425)

Temperatures were creeping up to 50C. I didn't think that was correct, because that's about where it would run before (there must have been a little improvement)

Then I realized that my Corsiar H100 was only on the lowest setting. Now I am hovering between 43-44C and it's constant on all cores. Much better IMO

I am reading the temps with CoreTemp BTW

Newegg is now selling the FX-8150 with liquid cooling kit but shows the stock clock speed as 3.9GHz. Could this be a typo or posssibly SE FX-8150 with higher clocks since it has the liquid cooling kit?

AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.9GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor with Liquid Cooling Kit FD8150FRGUWOX

3.9 to 4.2 doesnt seem like much of a turbo too me. if the 8120 goes from 3.1 to 4ghz with turbo on then i would think the 3.9ghz is a typo.
