Ok, but to be fully sure, you're going to have to test the 2550 CPU also. A successful run with it will prove a problem with the board. Without a successful run, you can't 100% rule out a possible problem with the CPU (it is unlikely though).

About the Silverstone, like Mussels said, it hasn't fried anything yet.

He's only hitting 60'c at load.
something else might be overheating like the VRM or the chipset?

No bro, I was running open case with a fan blowing onto the internals as well. Instant shut down on a cool start machine when you turn p95 on means bad something.

Its not the PSU for sure, I am running it on my power hungry 120watt pulling phenom 2 with an idling 9800 GT on Intel Burn test and its like a rock (I was strong as I could be...)

Big nuisance was getting the 8 pin out of the way of the v8 so I could put the strider in. I just put an 8 pin extension I had lying around and I plan to just leave that EPS 8 pin in because I am not dealing with that crap again, had to remove the back fan AND maneuver forceps in there to pull it out.

Its on the counter because I don't feel like dealing with the wiring. Its having no problem with the Phenom (back to UEFI defaults) and I'll run p95 for 6 hours or so. Then I'll do an Amazon return tomorrow on the itx mobo.

edit: just passed IBT max ram 10 loop no problem. Running 3dmark06 to stress the GPU's 12v rail. Then I'll run p95 for the 6 hours. This system is way way more power hungry than the woodenboxen so if it passes this then its definitely the mobo.
