just did some case modding, put in a top fan, cut out mesh and put in grills, etc. etc., and also lapped the heatsink and heat spreader. Good news, temps down to 28 idle 40 load with opty 148 (not joking).
however, it always boots up in fail safe mode, even after i overclock. Tried resetting bios several times. Ruled out a few things, its not the power supply (30+amps on 12v), but dont know why it might be doing this. THoughts?

Starting the computer with the jumper for cmos on reset is VERY bad. I would suspect a low or dead cmos battery though.
