I started the thread below early on after building this PC. The continual random freezing has ceased.
I am getting freezes when I try to run backup of HD. I gave up on the Windows back up and have run a successful backup with Macrium Reflect. The MR is a scheduled BU and it hasn't run again yet so I'm not sure what it will do next time. I had Syncback recommended to me a while back and really like it due to the fact that I can back up actual files with enough storage space that I can open without doing a restore. I have successfully backed up my documents and my photos but the full backup will not complete without freezing the machine. I bought a new Seagate drive for doing these backups. I ran the three programs suggested in the above thread. The only thing I notice is in the new external drive temperature shows 53° and the range is 50-55°. Is this a problem? I can post the three results if anyone cares to look.
Here is the Speccy link showing the temp of the new hard drive. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/MbZZwMvaJPROPaGsyWlYOBy
Thanks for any help/insight.
