I recently sent this message to intel tech but the automated response gave me zip:
Entire system freezes intermittently every second or so for about 6 seconds. This happens within an hour from booting the system and with ten-fifteen minutes between them.
I've eliminated the GPU, RAM and HDDs with various stress tests. A program called CPU Stability test by Jouni Vuorio reports my system as unstable, returning an exception from a Tprime module.
My system is (and never has been) overclocked, and the system ambient temperature after 10 hours (5 stress testing) is 39° with the CPU at 38°. The hottest component is the GPU at 46°.
I also swap tested the RAM with another set of the same speed (PC2 6400 2GB) with no change.

Anyone know what could be causing this? It causes my entire system to slow RIGHT down. Sounds stutter, the mouse moves 2 pixels a minute and then a 6 seconds later it's fine.
