Yes, try to see if it's a heat issue. Get something like healthd to 
monitor temp and the distributed.net client or Prime95, whatever can get 
that processor hot and see if it freezes up again..

Also, if you have something like a Knoppix boot CD available, try it and 
run the same things you do and see if the same happens.

Considering it's a new processor, the BIOS should be set to either 
reboot or just boost the fans if the processor begins to overheat and I 
think it might even lower the power going to it to lower the temp. Try 
to get it to freeze again and reboot right away and check the temps in 
the BIOS.
