    I don't know, but SpeedFan read like this:

    Temp 1: 38 C
    Temp 2: -48 C
    Temp 3: 39 C
    Local Temp: 36 C
    Remote Temp: 41 C

    When I try to play some CPU heavy game, I see Temp 1, 3 and Remoate Temp that actually went up. Temp 2 just stay still at -48. So I don't think my CPU is at 48 C.

    your temps are fine, have you installed your sound and video drivers correctly?

    You might have a chipset cooling issue as opposed to a cpu heat problem. Is you case cooling good ? anything blowing cool air on the chipset heatsink? If not I would try opening the case and pointing a fan at the inside, if the stability issue goes away Id look at the chipset being to hot....
