It seems highly likely to me you have a hardware fault, and I very much doubt it is the power supply. Although you have ordered a power supply, I don't think it is the PSU as I doubt it would only affect a particular core, but your problem is related on core #2. I would suspect the motherboard, RAM or CPU.

It would be worth running with one DIMM for a while. Performance would drop a bit, as you would only be using one of the two memory channels. Then swap the DIMMs over. See if the problem changes with DIMMs. If not, I suspect you are down to the CPU or motherboard.

It would be worth taking screenshots, photographs or log files showing the problem. You can then present these to the seller. Also show your BIOS to indicate you are not overclocking things, since overclocking always increases the chances of running into problems.
