Default Answers ? Suggestions? Built and using but not quite right. Wrong memory listed/Temperature

I built a machine in an mATX form factor. There are two things that I m not sure about.

1. I have 6gb Corsair Dominator Tri-memory in the three slots as shown in the manual, but windows sys info says 4gb Physical memory. This cannot be correct?

2. My temperatures according to Core Temp 99.7 idles in the 50's and is often in the 60's and occasionally the 70's under load. This seems hot to me. My Sager NP8760 laptop running the same software idles in the mid 40's and will one occasion hit 60' running AutoCad and the other heavy programs.

On this machine I have used the ASUS overclocking utility and just selected "i950" which as I understand it adjusts everything for i950 like performance. If I remember correctly, even without the overclock, temperatures remain the same, as they do even with the case open an all 6 fans running.

Below are the machine spec,s and the Windows System Info

My specs are
-Silverstone Sugo SG01 Case
-Silvestone modular 650 W PS
-ASUS Rampage III GENE ROG mATX - iX58 - LGA1366 Socket mobo
-Intel Core i7 Processor i7-930 2.80GHz 8 MB LGA1366 CPU
-Crucial C300 128 SSD
-Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D Dominator 6GB 3 x 2 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz 240-Pin DDR3 Core i7 Memory Kit
-ATI FirePro V4800 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Workstation Video Card
-Win 7 Pro 64
