so maybe it isn't even a psu problem but a cpu one?

If it was strictly a problem with the CPU, you'd likely not be able to boot, or this test would fail within a few seconds.

9 minutes is possible but a bit on the early side to be a thermal issue; more likely would be the memory config and BIOS setup is marginal and that relaxing the timings would help. If you shut down for a while, and then do a cold restart with the case open, does that result in the stress test taking longer to fail?

If so, check your cooling.

On the other hand, if the length of time before failure doesn't change, or more precisely seems random-- 5-10 minutes one try, an hour the next, that generally indicates memory and motherboard BIOS setup.

PSU problems tend to not show up with prime95, but when you have the disks busy and maybe graphics, also.
