Did you upgrade to that Cpu? You might need to update the BIOS.

I had a look at your motherboards cpu support list. It doesn't support 45nm Core2 CPUs, you will have to buy a new motherboard. A cheap Gigabyte G31 motherboard will do fine if you're on a budget. I have one in a spare system and it's a solid little board.

yeah, i noticed that too, but if u could, i would like to hear your opinion. my pc was ok before, it was built 2 years ago, the problem came 6 months ago.freezes!! my mobo does not support 45 nm but why it could ran well before?

Because it could support your old cpu but not the new one. Putting your old cpu back would probably fix it.

It could be the PSU thats starting to degrade or even the motherboard. You should also run memtest86+ just to make sure the RAM is ok. Do you have a spare PSU you could test with?

It could have a lower power draw than your computer, so it won't show but it might get worse later on.

Well since your pc got better with the other PSU, it's probably that. 90% sure.

You should still get a new motherboard though, running an unsupported cpu on the motherboard could damage any number of your pc's components.

Have you been cleaning and reapplying thermal paste between CPU changes?
