With 10 motherboards supporting Kentsfield and the same amount for Clovertown, Asustek easily won the competition, and was awarded to deliver the first testimonial speech among Intel's partners. In desktop motherboards, Asustek was followed by Gigabyte with eight models, Universal Abit with seven and Foxconn (the registered trade name for Hon Hai Precision Industry) with five.

In total, 39 desktop motherboards from eight vendors were presented at the event. For quad-core Xeon processor support, the two leaders were Asustek and US-based Supermicro, each with 10 motherboards. Gigabyte and Micro-Star International (MSI) shared third place, with three motherboards each. In total, 32 products from eight vendors represented Intel's ecosystem in this segment.

Today, Intel officially launched four quad-core Xeon processors and one Core 2 Extreme CPU, all with 64KB level-one (L1) cache (equally shared between data and instruction caches) per core and 2x4MB level-two (L2) cache. Priced from US$455 to US$1,172, all the new CPUs are promised to be socket-compatible with Intel's future 45nm quad-core processors, according to Intel.

Looks like it's getting too hot or you've overclocked the memory too much.

Can you set it all back to stock?

set all your overclocking back to the Default settings and keep them that way, then use something like Riva Tuna or the new Nvidia drivers temperature monitor to log the temperatures while you are ingame. if they are over about 60*C i would try re-seating the waterblock and reapplying a thin layer of thermal paste
