    It just freezed again while simply listening to songs on Itunes. Checked the CPU temp right after and it was at 63C, which ain't that bad. For some reason, nothing new on ''Who Crashed''

    Could somebody help me please?

    Your problem is right in front of you. The CPU is getting too hot. Either you placed too much grease between the heatsink and CPU. Did not connect the fan for the CPU. Or did not use any grease at all on the CPU & Heatsink.

    I would not be surprised that by now, you have pretty much fried the CPU by letting it go on this long.

    I used the thermal paste that was on the Corsair I bought, no less no more. The fans are all connected.

    But yeah, now that I remember, the Corsair was a refurbished unit. Still, the unit looked brand new and there was thermal paste on it but ... maybe not enough?

    Not trying to deny what any of you guys are saying but ... is it possible that these crashes are simply caused by my old GPU?

    Here's a pic of the inside of my PC, just to be sure that everything's okay.

    You do not need Thermal Grease slathered across the CPU thick. You just need a thin coating on it, between the CPU & heatsink. As for TMPIN2. That would be the Northbridge. It can be that either that sensor is faulty, or being read incorrectly by the software you are using.

    You may want to contact Asus regarding this. Or go through their forums to see if someone on there has the same motherboard with the same issues.

    That 128c is from VRM chips. That processor draws over 200W when pushed and likes to heat up a lot. In your case, you are lucky, seen much worse cases. You might have problem between CPU and cooler base. If there was pre-applied paste or eevn vorse a thermal pad (thingy like a thin chewing gum) you better get some good paste end redo it.
