9.) Ran with system open to check cooling (same)

If your trying to find a heat problem (your problem seems to be one) a Big house fan works best here as even thou your case is opened it still could have a dead air space, the xtra air flow covers you here.

You could try a can of freeze spray on the CPU & see if it takes longer for windows to crash & if it takes longer then its the CPU. The test could be repeated on the MoBo & its chipset.

A question I would have asked before is did you ever remove the Heat Sink from the CPU & just put it back on ?.
This is a very bad thing to do as the therma material would get air bubbles which would trap heat like an insulator, very very bad.

I would still place my money on the CPU being bad, still I would look for a forum that covers that MoBo's reputation & maybe the CPU too as you spent to much money already. Anyways the anwser you seek is ruff as the MoBo & CPU work as a team so the only way in the end to figure out which of the two is bad is to replace one.
