Howdy!
I've recently upgraded few hardware from my 7 year old computer that got the motherboard fried. Unfortunately the replacement part din't come out as good as I hope as it pretty low budget.
The main problem I have right now is I'm -assuming- its the CPU thats bottle necking everything, causing crashes, low performance and BSOD.
Here is my specs-
_________________________
AMD-A6-5400K APU With Radeon HD Graphics 4.30GHZ (OC'ed)

4.00GB Memory
64 Bit Operating Systems Windows 7 Ultimate
HIS Radeon HD 7750 GPU

ASUS F2A85-M MotherBoard

So everything is pretty much replaced from my old computer BESIDE the GPU, before I could pretty much run most game on Ultra setting at bout 25 FPS, with hardware as old as 7 year aside the Graphic Card.
Recently I've been getting constant crashes playing games such as Tera Online and others, mostly fatal client exception as often as 10-20min, and once in a while an entire computer froze/crash, it would mess up the graphic and completely froze and make the BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ sound.
The crash would look exactly like this

Please note I've done a few OC by adjusting CPU capability to 130% as well as ran the OC Tuner.
Aside from that I've not touched anything else, the OC was necessary as the performance was almost unplayable before OC.
Another thing I notice is my CPU usage is ALWAYS 80-100% constantly, at most avg is 90%, when only running one single game without anything else, and it does not also help reducing the chance of crashes.
Heres a few picture I hope it might help.

Also the graphic setting in CCC is set to Optimal/Lowest possible.

For The CPU that maxing out. Make sure your mb bios been updated and you may want to add more ram. You can use msconfig and turn stuff off in start up you don't need. Also did you do a clean install of windows when your mb fried??? For the crashing did you replace your old power supply??

Yes, the driver for the bios is up to date as I checked, I've considered more RAM but right now I'm not too sure if it was the issue, most the time the RAM usage only goes up to 60-70% maximum
as for the old motherboard, everything is fresh, I have a clean/fresh install of Windows 7 on a completely new HD, and the Power supply is completely new as well.
Only Graphic Card is the only thing that did not get replaced.

HaVe you tried running the system on the onboard gpu to rule out a bad gpu.

Thanks for the reply
I just checked, and certain it's not the GPU.
