Let me know what your power settings are in Windows. Make sure all of those are set to Performance and not Power saving.

Also, 62 does seem a little high still. Maybe re-apply some thermal compound and see if it helps - one rice grain size prop in the center, push down on the cooler and twist back and forth slightly to spread the compound out on the CPU.

IMO - This still sounds like its something with your HW. With my experience more so the RAM being OC'ed or not getting enough voltage. It would be nice to get someone else opinion on this.

My power settings are all set to maximize performance. Display turns off after 10 minutes of being idle.

I will try and reapply the thermal compound. Was waiting to go get a new cooler and to see if that fixed the problem. Probably gonna go with the CM Hyper 212

So you think it is HW related? It has locked up when the RAM was at 1300 Mhz and 1600 Mhz.

Yes, I think it is but make sure you check the system event viewer in windows for any hiccups, errors, warnings and such. They will come with an error code that you can google for a proper explanation.

Like I said before it could be your CPU overheating since 62 does seem a little high for an AMD chip not an Intel like what you have, though. Let me know if you see any difference in the temps after you re-apply your thermal compound.

Ok changed out the cooler and it seemed to fix all of the problems up until today... everything started happening again even when I was not folding. Cpu load temp is about 45c now. When I boot up my computer the hdd light stays constantly on. (Yes it is wired right...) I am definitely thinking it is a hardware issue now. I have no idea what though. I am thinking CPU or Motherboard... Any tests I can do? Also I can hear some sort of squeaking sound in my case and it doesn't seem to be the hdd's or the fans... I think I am going to call Newegg this week.

Another weird thing is that sometimes when my graphics card is under load it will squeal. Is this normal or should I try and get a different one? It runs fine except for the squealing every now and then.

1. Glad to hear about the cooler
2. Try running Prime95 a few times. I think there's an extreme burn-in test or something. Try that for a few hours.
3. The squeaking/ squealing can be normal. Check with the manufacturer to see if it is.
4. I'm thinking it's your video card overheating. What are your GPU temps? Download and install MSI Afterburner. If it is getting too hot (over 70-80 C) then you should maybe create a fan profile to keep your temps down.

Ask me if you need help with anything

EDIT

5. Try Heaven Benchmark for your video stress testing. Raise the settings as high as you can get them to run on your video card to stress the crap out of it. It should freeze if it gets too hot (run in a window so you can monitor your Afterburner temps and fan speeds).

Did you ever check the SMART status of your HDDs? Try THIS since it didn't look like speed fan was working. It has happened to me a few times as well.

Ran Prime 95 for two hours and had no problems. Ran Intel Burn Test on Max 5 times and it showed the system was stable. Would make the system skip though because of my screen saver. Ran the Heaven Benchmark and temps never went above 70c. The card emits a high pitched squeaking sound when the benchmark is closing. Stays for a couple seconds then when the window closes it goes away. Gonna call Sapphire about that. I have seen it above 70c when playing FFXIV. It usually sits mid 70s when playing that game. Video card isn't the problem because I was folding using the cpu only and I can play FFXIV for hours without a crash.

The mechanical hard drives are fine and no program can read the SMART data of my c300 so I assume it is fine.

So now it is down to power supply and motherboard. I hear a high pitched whine coming from the power supply area after I boot the computer up into windows. It stays for awhile then disappears. Could a bad power supply or bad power connection in the wall cause my computer to lock up?

EDIT

Just a note. My computer is plugged directly into the wall. And doesn't appear to be making the sound right now after i rebooted.

First of all, it shouldn't be plugged straight into the wall. You should use a surge strip

Anyway back to the real convo. Everything seems fine. The only thing I can think of is it could be your powers supply but I would check out the squealing if it will give you a peace of mind. It is possible to get small drops in voltages from your wall outlet due to old faulty wiring or high load on the lines. A UPS will take care of that but that's just more money to spend. First find out about your PSU and video card.

I really feel for you on this because I just went through some hell with my current rig in the building stages. Not giving up is the best thing you can do. You learn so much

I know I shouldn't plug directly into the wall haha... Just didn't have anything but cheap $5 surge strips that probably wouldn't do anything.

Yeah... this problem has been difficult to figure out. If anything I think I will just reinstall windows to see if it is a driver issue somewhere. I will call Sapphire and Corsair the next time I have a chance and talk to them about it.

Thanks for being the one to give me feedback during all this. This was my first build and I was hoping everything would go without problems. I will let you know what the status is after I do a clean install of windows and call companies.
