New CPU problem !

Hi , i recently upgraded my HP 6710f for games. I put in a SSD, EVGA 560ti, 650watt PSU. The setup ran great for a couple of days. The stock processor was an Athlon II x 4. I had a deal on a Phenom II x 6 1045T so i grabbed it since it s the quickest CPU i can put on my mobo.
Here is the link to the Mobo specs:
When i installed the new CPU, on the first boot it freezed on the windows pasword screen. On second boot, i went as far as the loading of starcraft 2. After searching on forums, i went in the power management options in the control panel and put my CPU usage always at 100% even on 0%load. Since then it only freeze once every hour.(on a 3 week testing) When it freeze , only the mouse moves but the video is still. If i m in a game, the music will be stuck in an infinite loop of half a second but the mouse always work. Everytime it freeze, if a wait for about 40 seconds, it always unfreeze like nothing happenned, no error messages. I mean it NEVER really stopped working , and always the same amount of time of stopage. It does it at random times, eavy load in a game don t matter.
-i updated my bios and drivers
-My cpu meet the 95watt max of mobo specs
-Temperature of CPU and GPU normal.
-Enough power (650watt psu)
Don t know what to do . AMD Support is long to answer....
Thanks in advance.
