Yep replying to myself...

Have two defective blocked cores. 3D Mark proved it. With 4 cores running CPU overheated, with 2 cores sytem temp control took over. Ah well was a nice feeling for a few hours.

Did a benchmark with GTAIV, was blistering...ly fast on 4 cores. Updated Adobe flash player > restsrted and blue-screened. Back to dual now.
