Have you checked the heatsink and video card fans for dust and lint buildup? Clean them out with a can of compressed air

Had similar problem with a new intel quad processor. It was solely due to a problem of heat transfer from the CPU. The cooling unit supplied by the manufacturer was inadequate. I solved this problem by installing CM Hyper TX2 cooler which was highly rated by Tom's Hardware. Look at the ratings under Tom's Hardware for cooler's.
