Use this http://www.piriform.com/speccy to get the MB details and use the link below to download and install HW monitor to enable the temps and voltages to be double checked, post screen shots of both;

Did you try your Screen on another computer to see if you have the same red dots issue, it would either rule out your screen as the problem or your PC as the problem.

Sorry about the delay getting back to you(work gets in the way sometimes).
Regarding trying another screen see post #7

I would say it is too early to suspect your screen is bad dead pixels do not come and go they are just that dead, fortunately there are other things we can check first and the most obvious one is connect the computer to another PC screen (not the TV you say it doesn't happen with that

Looked at your MB manual and there are 3 headers on the MB for connecting
fans to, CPU, Chassis fan and Power fan, if you have these connected you
can adjust the settings for them in the BIOS, this includes both fan speed
and whether or not the system monitors and reports their performance.
Read carefully how to do this should you need to, you will find the info
in Section 4.27 of your MB manual and here is a link to the manual http://www.manualnguide.com/dl/8925/
Just in case you have not got a chassis fan I have included a link to a
video showing what one is and how you fit one

I suggested to try his screen in another computer because it happened to me that a LCD Screen who would work great (perfect image no dead pixels) for long periods at a time and sometimes shorts periods and at one point would start to have dots (not red) and lines in whatever i was doing at the time (work, games, browsing) I also though it was my video card or heat or this and that and finally it was the screen itself that had taken some humidity and some contacts were overheating, I cleaned it and it has been working great ever since (couple of years now).

Trying it in another computer made me see it was not my computer but the LCD Screen itself.

Just a suggestion if nothing else works,

Hope you find the problem.

I am in agreement with you Alzeimer when you are having display issues common sense says always try another screen if you can, and that was why I suggested it in post #7
