My computer would freeze around 10 times daily...Not at any specific time, but just randomly. I

1. Ran several virus scans, no viruses were found.
2. Re-installed windows, but still freezes,
3. Ran memtest to check if my memory wasn't working fine, but no errors found.
4. My CPU fan was making a lot of noise, so I bought a new CPU fan and it still froze.
5. Ran hard drive diagnostics, no errors.
6. Bought a new power supply (everyone told me that it could be my power supply and the voltage might be fluctuating, i.e. a bad power supply), still the computer froze.

What could the problem be?? Please let me know.

Most likely the CPU is overheating. Check the temperature of the CPU, with for example Speedfan.

The CPU temperature is 45C.
The hard drive temperature is 44C.
So I don't think overheating is the problem.

Any other suggestions?

Check your Event Viewer for errors around the time of the freezes. Here's a How-To: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

Then we'll move on from there. I suspect, since it's freezing after the reinstall, that you may have a bad component. Did you reinstall all of the drivers (mob0/chipset, video, LAN, audio, etc) after reinstalling Windows?
