Can it be a temperature problem? Or insufficient power? In idle it run those temps.: CPU: 65 degrees. GPU: 45 degrees. MB: 31 degrees. ICH: 48 degrees. IOH: 52 degrees.

It is a possible culprit with load since the temp goes up. Cleaning and re seating the heat sink with new thermal compound might be the solution.
