This motherboard's old, and I dunno why i'm clinging onto it (It's had 3 CPU's in it already for AM2, 2+ and AM3). Should I just drop it for a shiny new one - I think it's going bad (Some USB ports no longer work as per an older thread of mine)..?

Can you pass the OCCT PSU test with Crossfire enabled?

Nope - It failed after 44 minutes...

GPU: OCCT test barely lasted 3 minutes and Windows BSOD.

A problem with the PSU or Motherboard?

CPU should throttle without errors- crashing would indicate instability regardless of throttling. If the GPU side doesn't work, either they're too hot, or they're also not getting enough power or flaky power under load. In either case, go 'test drive' a PSU from whoever you can get one from.
