I purchased an AMD FX 8350 8-core processor (With Hyper 212 EVO CPU fan) to replace my 4300, and an Asus Geforce GTX 950 2GB to replace a Radeon HD 5670, and upgraded 8 GB of RAM to 16 GB (G Skill Rawjaws X). My first issue was the computer would sometimes turn on, but would always ultimately lead to half of my motherboard working (Asus M5A97 R2.0). I solved this by replacing the Power Supply, I went from a Corsair CX500 to a Corsair CX750M which works wonderfully.
     My newfound problem is the fact that my computer is now freezing on occasion. Sometimes it'll freeze in 30min from start-up, other times it takes a cpl hours but eventually, it always freezes---then I have to hard power it down. I downloaded "driver booster" which automatically checks up-to-date drivers for you to download, so I don't believe it has anything to do with that. I checked my RAM sticks by individually installing them and running them 1 at a time, the problem isn't here either. 
       ANY IDEAS? Can anyone walk me through solving this mess? Thank you...

If you are having problems like this and are absolutly sure your memory is fine, my money is on a faulty mobo. Your post says you ran your memory sticks one by one, i assume you used a diagnostic tool like memcheck86+? if not, i would reccomend you do that.
