Default BSOD only when gaming

Hello guys,

My Pc configuration is:

Asus P7P55D-evo
I7-860 @2.80
ATI Saphire HD4890 2GB-DDR5
4GB DDR3 DRAM Freq 693.4MHZ (2x2GB)
Hard drive 1TB Caviar Black 7200rpm

I've bought this pc 22 months ago (2 months until warranty ends!) and since the begining, always when playing games, i've experienced crashes followed by a really annoying noise (while dumping) and the blue screen.

Since then i've tried to send the pc to repair but as the components where bought from diferent retailers now the shop where i've bought the pc has not been able to fix this!

I don't even know where to start now, so i'm hoping that you could help me, at least figuring out if it is a broken component or else.

I can also tell you that:

1-Using the OCCT and Realtemp software I've detected that the cpu would get temperatures of 90ºC :S I've bought a new cooling system a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. Now temperature won't raise 59ºC!

2- The processor was replaced for a new one (the retailer send it as a bonus for 10months of waiting) but the BSOD persists!

3- Now the OCCT stress test show fatal error on core 6 but other times it says 3 or 2. Also, Prime95 detectes errors saying: "FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4"

4- I've performed MEMtest 86 and there was no erros found.

5- I've the lastest drivers and bios version and never tried to overclock anything!

Can you help me? THANKS

was the processor replaced before or after you added the Cooler Master Hyper 212+.

Can you post a screenshot of CPU-Z and OCCT?

here a guide to posting screenshots.

First, I've replaced the processor. And after getting 2 or 3 BSOD I've noticed the temperature problems and added the Cooler Master.

Now, I'm posting the screenshots. During the OCCT test, i've noticed that it said that cpu freq was overclocked 9% and the bus freq 4%... And this time the error was on core 5.
