While that temp is on the warm side, it is not outside what I would expect a motherboard to tolerate, without adverse reaction. Of course, if you are overclocking it, then the temperture of everything is a factor in the "big equation".

a 250W PSU is going to be working outside its "weight class" running your setup. That can definitely impact stability. Perhaps it was cooler over at your cousins house?
