****, I may have to try this Intel burn test. How long should I run it for?

Oh and dude... are you sure all you switched out was the cpu? Check for spyware and if you still have any of your old cpu's drop them back in and give them a test run.

This CPU is brand new. So nothings wrong with it. I just sent my Q9450 back to Newegg. I should of tested this out before hand. All I did was pop out my CPU and put in a new one. Applied some new Tuniq 2 paste. Absolutely nothing has changed except for maybe my resolution... Gah what a pain.
