Default Brand new Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 freezes seconds into games.

For starters my Chipset idles at 80c. I bought some screws and nuts and bolted it down & reapplied thermal paste. At the moment I am using a temporary geforce 7500 LE using forceware 190 (Windows 7) and when ever I start a game and actually get into gameplay, it artifacts then freezes. All I can do is hard reboot. My motherboard is less that 24 hours old and with it being christmass time I really don't want to RMA it. All I have done to the BIOS was change my timings to 5-5-5-18, which did nothing to help. Any ideas?

Having the chipset running at 80C will never allow for a stable board. Either find out why, or RMA.
