Have you tried before to run computer without mprime?
If you want to stress test hardware use something else, compile whole
KDE for instance.

Simply exclude mprime as a suspect.

But, mprime is not a suspect at all. mprime is a well known stress
test. I can certainly try something else too, but what will it tell

Reading all attempts to test the board with mprime I can't understand what you
are trying to archive. Are you looking for motherboard that will survive 100%
usage of basic computer components for long periods of time (hours, days,
more), or you just want to have dependable board for normal usage that will
not break in the middle of the compilation.

What you have by now:
- well known program,
- compiled for Factory,
- on new motherboard.
- you are using this combination for a week or two.
- test in cold air tells that problem has something to do with overheating
- increasing memory voltage to 2.6 V has some success

You have to take out some factors from equation to find solution.
To concentrate on hardware alone you have to exclude Factory and mprime as
contributing factors to failure. Installation lasts longer than simply run
something else, like kernel compilation.

You may want to go higher with memory voltage, if possible on that MB, but
check with RAM manufacturer is that OK. Modern boards have their ideas about
CPU voltage and BIOS doesn't give chance to change that, and that could be
another hardware culprit.
