I'm not sure what to tell you, skip. There's no hard data we can pull from this, and hardware tests so far either come up clean or are showing behavior we can't trace a pattern from. Which makes me think either you got a bad CPU, a bad mobo, or a bad PSU. I call them the Trio of Trouble because they are very difficult to diagnose and usually show very random and untraceable behavior. Unfortunately unless Prime95 tests show something definitive (in this case they don't) it's had to resort to replacing each of those three parts until the symptoms disappear with previous cases involving one of these bad components. I'm sorry I cannot be more accurate in my analysis.

I'd start with the CPU, since previously it was made aware that you had some heating issues with your CPU and it may have caused permanent damage to the CPU before you could get a better cooler on in time.

Well I tried windows 8 and found that my CPU clock speed keeps changing under load. What does it mean?

Sounds normal, how much variance is there and what is loading it?

Well when I was running prime 95(100% load), the clock speed was changing from 4.06 to 4.10 ghz.

That is fine, prime exerts varying stress level depending on the calculations it does. The CPU can cut back too if it "thinks" all the clock speed isn't needed.

I found the problem. I fell so stupid. I guess this kinda stuff only happens on the first build. The bios default vcore was wrong so I just changed it to 1.14 voltes and now everything works(9 hours on prime 95). I will do some more testing then if everything is good I will change the status to solved. Thanks for your time.

Good to hear you found the Vcore issue. This sort of thing can happen on the 9th or 10th build too.

I know that some mobos have a default setting that is an OCed variation that they setup under the belief that it's still within safe parameters for any typical system setup. However, it's still designed on speculation, so it still has the potential to bug things out. Usually there are default 'safe' settings available on the BIOS as well. However, do be aware that sometimes existing hardware problems can actually just end up manifesting and being exacerbated by even the most miniscule alterations that would otherwise be stable to healthy parts. Be vigilant to ensure that's not the case.
