Does this mean I should RMA the current mobo and ask for a replacement since it confirms that there is a faulty sensor?
Thanks again, man!
Glad you got it working! I would RMA that board if you can.

It is usually a bad sensor on the motherboard that causes this problem. BD PROCHOT is not well understood so if you RMA it, the tech might see that it boots up and think it is fine. If you can get a replacement without a big hassle, go for it. If not, you can live with this problem by disabling BD PROCHOT. ThrottleStop has a feature so the program will exit 5 seconds after it starts. This lets you use the program to set up your CPU and then it will automatically exit. Just add this to the ThrottleStop.INI configuration file.ExitTime=5
and you can add ThrottleStop to your startup sequence using the Task Scheduler. You might need to run ThrottleStop again after you use Hibernate or Stand By mode.
Glad this worked for you. Now you can get back to overclocking.
Thanks for helping cynesper!
I wouldn't of known that was the problem.

I think the max I would go for 24/7 would be 1.35-1.37v, and that would likely be if I really wanted those extra megahertz.
I also don't turn the power saving features off, they don't bother me so I just leave them on.
