First turn off turbo, LLC, APM, C6, C1E, AMD C&Q, etc. set it to 200 x 20, CPU voltage to 1.3V, CPU/NB to 2000 with the CPU/NB @ 1.175V. Keep HT and NB on auto. Boot up and run CPU-Z & HWmonitor and run prime95 and try to capture a screenshot for us after about 5 minutes. (easiest way to do screenshot is download picasa, open it and then minimize. Press the PRT SCR button anytime you want it to save a screenshot then go back later and save it as whatever filename .jpg you want).
