My PC started hard hanging randomly. At first it was 2-3 times a week, then the frequency increased and I did a clean install. Windows 8.1.
After a couple of days it did it again.
I need some help so I can narrow this down. Can't stand it anymore!
Here's the current situation:
I've already tested RAM/CPU with memtest. Ran 8 hours with no errors.
I've realdy ran OCCD for a couple of minutes and BurnInTest 15 min cycle. No crashes. So PSU and GPU seem to be okay?
I've ran CrystalDiskInfo and HDTune. Former reports 99% health and later reports C7 errors. I have replaced the sata cable and SO FAR, it hasnt increased.

What do you guys think? Is my hardware excluded? Probably drivers/software? Any ideas?
