    so tried running prime95. Both times the system froze within a minute. Didn't see the temp the first time but the last time it was about 40 degrees C. No BSOD so no logs available.

    Was any other software in the background running besides of the temperature monitor software?

    For now, forget Prime95 and run the other tests.
    Ruling out the rest specifies the cause more.
