I built a higher end PC last February and everything was great until about 2 months ago. Random freezes started happening at first, not a blue screen, but a hard freeze where the peripherals would die and whatever sound or image was on the screen was stuck there. Only a reboot would get it going again. Then random reboots started happening, like everything would completely lose power and then start back up.
When the freezes started, I suspected software, I wanted to upgrade my SSD anyways so this gave me a good reason to. However after a new SSD and fresh copy of win7 installed it still happens.
I checked the temp, with speed fan and core temp, all are fine, I have an after market CPU cooler, so I did not think it was the problem anyways.
I then looked at my GPU. I have an old 560ti from my old system and popped that in, but the problem still persists.
I then ran mem test, no errors. I removed 2 sticks anyways so I went from 16gig to 8, but its still happening.
I re-seated my CPU cooler just for the heck of it, but to no avail.
Right now the only things I have not been able to test is the PSU, MOBO and CPU. I doubt its the CPU, but you never know. I am leaning towards the PSU or MOBO. If anyone has encountered this or have any suggestions I would appreciate your time, thank you.
