That is probably plain instability in your case, not a VRM failure. Check your RAM settings.

one important thing to say is that the cpu never exceeded 55c even at max load which seems very good temperatures. now coould anyone tell me if increasing voltage or northbridge could have damaged the cpu?
You should either clear your cmos, or go into bios and load optimize defaults. You most likely just have something set wrong.
