If that's the case, Amazon will be able to find out who was the previous owner and kick his/her ass. However, I don't think that's the case since the OP bought the CPU as brand new, not used (unless Amazon is selling used items as brand new).
To be honest, I'm not sure what I'd do. I'm afraid they wouldn't believe me if I talked to customer support, but returning it with no explicit complain might just postpone the problem for later...
Did you buy it from the marketplace or directly from Amazon?
Did you run with the bare minimum (no GPU, only 1 memory slot and so on)?Do you still have your old psu around?
I would check if the loop has no leaks with the air pump method. You don't need to tear the loop apart, just shut the computer down and take the PSU out.However, I advice you to take the look apart and test the gpu block alone.
You only need to take your PC to somewhere else, regardless if they have laptops or whatever. In other words, if a possible cause is an environmental one, try your computer in another place. If you don't want to carry both the PC and the screen (because they don't have any), you might be able to use their tv.As for the USB/PSU hypothesis: that kind of erratic behaviour seems very unlikely, and I don't think a USB panel can cause that. I think you've been already told to do...
You don't need drivers for Linux, usually. And if you needed them, the mouse would not work at all. I guess you've already tried pluggin the mouse in a USB 2 port, haven't you?I think it's already time to test your PC somewhere else.
I encourage you to try a Linux distro (Ubuntu, Mint), the installers will be enough (they have a live session where you can try the OS out). That'll help to blame the hardware, the OS or the drivers. I would also test the PC in somebody else's house (friends, family) if you suspect it might be power related.
I guess this is your review:
So... there's aluminium then?
