I have an FX8120 8 core CPU and my machine keeps rebooting if I use more than cores 1 and 2. Is that a processor problem or could it be elsewhere in my system?

My computer will boot even using all 8 cores but then will reboot randomly. So far I have replaced my mainboard (had several problems with the first 2 am3+ boards before returning to an upgraded model of the original board). I have also swapped RAM and on getting overheating warnings on current m/b I installed a water cooling system. The RAM I swapped into my machine came from my son's machine and it is still operating fine on my old RAM, as it was on the RAM I took from his.

I am not sure which way to go next, new cpu or new video card, or neither. I am looking for answers and/or suggestions.
