Yeah hate to see you have to drive such a distance, that's why I was hoping there was somebody nearby that you knew that would be willing to test the RAM for you in their system. But if that's not the case, you gotta do what you have available to you. Good luck, let us know the results of what you find.

You may be running hot on your cpu now because you might have some air gaps between the cpu and heatsink (because the cpu was off the heat sink). You should remove all the used thermal paste and install some fresh stuff for a better seal
