I used to have the same motherboard as you - and it was fine for me with two different Thoroughbreds, and a Palomino.
Which BIOS revision are you using? When did this start? Is FSB Spread spectrum enabled in the BIOS? (big time shot in the dark)
Has anyone else seen something similar before?
(BUMP so someone who knows why it's happening can see this)

Also, what speed is your RAM running at?
Does GCPUID still give you that "alternative timer" window? And what happens when you set the BIOS to run at stock speed?
