I've seen similar problems on two other systems, both of them had
badly seated heatsinks (one was official amd that came with cpu,
the other was some other brand).

I've had the same problem with my CLK-800 heatsinks, they are super-heavy
so i didn't seat one of them correctly, so the system would panic at random.

I'd suggest you remove the heatsink completely and re-seat it.

Though your bios seems to have a different opinion :P
