IT sounds more like a hardware problem than a software one. I've seen 
those exact symptoms many times with overheating CPUs, and sometimes 
with other defective parts.
You could check if the CPU fan is working correctly and is well adjusted 
to the CPU. If your mainboard allows it, check its temperature (though 
it's not always very accurate).

Other tests would be trying to disable as many options as possible in 
the BIOS.
Since you have everything on the MB, it doesn't seem likely there would 
be an hardware conflict.
