Oh guys one thing since I have to remove the momma board to install a backplate, what's a good surface to lay it on so I won't end up with a toasted motherboard :S ?

anything non-conductive, preferably lint/particle free.
Cardboard, wood, corkboard, etc...

Ok I'll just use the glorious UPS box it comes in.

Do you guys know if Slaymate's guide for overclocking is updated, and I'm guessing cpuid is the program I want for watching temps after overclock?

There's many of them. I tend to use HWMonitor or CoreTemp. Not sure about his guide, as I don't keep up on it. It'll be a guideline at most.
