I'm sure I've read that your NB is more susceptible to heat damage than your CPU is (for your socket).
Do you have liquid cooling on your chipset, if not, you may want to consider it imo because I'm fairly sure what you're describing is directly in line with an overheated NB.
Just read the NB temps, probably like everybody else said then, voltages.
I'm slightly curious however, how did you read the NB temp?
I have a DFI X48 LanParty LT board. It has sensors on the VRM and NB. I use their SmartGuardian program to read those temps. Since it has the temp sensors, HWmonitor also picks up on them. It's one of the reasons I bought this board. Good to know temps!
It's cooled by the stock NB heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835231001
Will report back NB voltage bump results in a bit. After being back at 3.6Ghz, I've had no instability/problems.
