I can rerun the test again after the PC cools but the heat issue concerns me because I can't afford to cook the PC as I can't afford to rebuild another computer at the moment.
This means you've got a defective CPU, you should get another one

A few not so nice four letter words are coming to mind right about now.....

Well I'm certainly open to suggestions on what I could replace/upgrade the CPU to without have to buy a new board, ram, psu...actually I need a new power supply...and a SLI capable board but that would involve just building a new PC.

This is my current setup:

Case - Newegg.com - APEVIA X-Alien ATXA7AW-BL/420 Blue Aluminum Server Computer Case 420W Power Supply
Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131603
CPU - Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X3 425 Rana 2.7GHz 3 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Processor ADX425WFGIBOX
RAM - Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
Graphics Card - Newegg.com - PNY VCG941024GXPB GeForce 9400 GT 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card

Not sure if current board could support either of the CPU's I'm looking at though.

1. AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

2. AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor ADX640WFGMBOX

Leaning toward #1 though as a quad core should suit my gaming needs WoW, BF2, CoD, SW:TOR

In conclusion I guess if the CPU is defective then there's not much I can do other than put up with the BSOD issues until I can afford to upgrade/rebuild. If it weren't for the BSOD issues this PC would be great but with all these problems I'm having trying to fix every blue screen error one at time just...well ...sucks.
