So should I unplug one of the two 4 pin EATX12V connectors I have plugged into my MB?
I also turned off Core C6 State again to see if that helps.
Turn all of power stuff off. C1, C6, Cool and Quiet etc, this rules all of that out. It also covers turbo, so make sure that's off.
About your board, use 4+4 in the 8 pin EPS12 connector. The additional 4 pin plug is just that, additional. The manual says 4 in 8, or 8 in 8, or 4 in 4. I personally just use all 12.
What kind of 500W PSU is it? If it's of decent quality, then it's probably more than enough.
