Sorry for the double post, but I think this is worth a bump.

Turns out that massive fan noise is due to my CPU fan that came with the 955. The messed up part is when I unplug the fan before boot up, EVERYTHING works again: ethernet light, GPU. Everything boots up normally. So I'm left wondering how the hell does this work? The only thing I can think of is that BIOS has something to do with controlling the fan when a certain temperature is hit. Then after the first incident, and I had to shut down by PSU, the fan thought the CPU was still at that temp so it goes crazy. However, I don't recall the CPU fan getting that loud last time. I guess as long as I know what the problem might be...

Now I just need to go ahead and get myself the mugen 2/disable some CPU fan settings in BIOS.
