    Maybe thermal throttle-ing, or a virus scanner... or spyware...

    sounds like a memory problem. try increasing your virtual memroy, or flushing out the spyware from your system using a utility such as Spybot S&D.

    What operating system do you have?

    Did you format and reinstall or just move over a working harddrive with an O/S? If thats the case - Windows doesn't always like to be move - many driver issues occur.

    Also check teh CPU temperature and make sure the Heatsink is seated correctly.
