even so those are some crazy high idle temps, mine is @ 3.1 right now and idles @ around 38° which is high imo load is about 58° and your core voltage is pretty high and so is your vid might just be a sour chip i have found that 1.375 is the sweetspot as far as voltage is concerned for my chip you might try to reseat your hsf and check your air flow?AsRock Z77 Extreme 4*3750K*XFX 7850*8 GB DDR3 1600*600W Corsair PSU

Maybe your CPU HSF isn't mounted properly? If it is, you should consider some aftermarket cooling.
From the information currently available, I'd take a guess and say running your memory out of spec is what's making the PC fail to POST at times.CPU: Q6600 @ 3.40 Ghz (378x9)

Use the following BIOS template to list all of your current settings (this template is from a GA-X38-DQ6 BIOS, but should be similar to the GA-P35C-DS3R)...
