it might be your psu fluctuating, i would just get some new coolers, zalman has a sweet new cooler for graphics cards http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118001 and for ur cpu this one would be good http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106061 its HUGE so if u decide to get it make sure it will fit first

At no stage did you say you actually had fixed those problems, so I figured you must have been posting from a second pc.
And yes, the stock Intel coolers on the Prescotts do sound like a jet engine, my sons pc P4 3.0 has the most annoying (fan noise wise) stock cooler I have ever encountered. Once he has enough money saved for his 7900GT I'll buy him a Zalman for his cpu, might even put a 9500 in my box and give him my AlCu Zalman.

I don't see your board in the list of non supported boards so I'd say you're good to go, just check you have enough room as per the pics on the page I've linked to below

Non supported/troublesome board list

A little advice .........
Don't use the Zalman thermal compound if you can help it, use Arctic Silver 5 or similar 99.9% silver based thermal compound (AS5 application Instructions)

I'm glad to hear it works..
But, as a side note, I think someone else mentioned this in the beginning, but I'll stress it..

If you live in the United States, your power supply must remain at 115V to prevent serious damage to your hardware. Europe uses 230V.
