So my problem is that SiSoft Sandra Hangs my computer when I run the "analysis and advice" and "monitor environment tests". I haven't tried any others. My system is oc'ed (to 4ghz from 3.5ghz, I bumped the multiplier from 17.5 to 20). I currently don't know why this is happening. I have stress tested my overclock with prime 95 and it is fine. I am suspecting memory but I am confused as why SiSoft's analysis freezes my computer. All my games and other programs work fine. All my drivers are upto date and my firmware. Any ideas?
OS: Windows 10 (originally windows 8.1)x64 full retail version
System age: 2yrs
OS age: ~8 months

System - Desktop (Custom Built):
MB - Asrock 990fx Fatal1ty Killer
CPU - AMD Fx-8320 @4.0ghz
RAM - 24gig (1x Corsair Vengeance 2x4 8gig kit and 1x Corsair Vengeance Pro 2x8 16gig kit)
GPU - MSI Gaming R9 290 (main card), PowerColor R7 240 (side card powering 2 other monitors)
OS Drive - 500gig Crucial m.2 ssd
Storage Drive - 4tb Toshiba hdd
Cache Drive - 120gig ssd
CD Drive - ATAPl iHAS124 E
USB Floppy Drive - Sony USB-FDU

Thanks for help!
