    Hi everyone, after a number of tries of attempting to figure out what my issue may be myself, I've almost given up.
    After a certain amount of time, my pc would almost seem to.. stutter and lag, when moving the cursor it would just stutter around and if I clicked anything, the system would just freeze entirely and I would have to reboot.

    I thought that I might have picked up a virus so I decided to wipe my system and put a brand new retail copy of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on and all was running well until around a few days after, the same happened and since then my pc has been sitting there all alone.

    I'd really appreciate if anyone could shed some light on what could be causing these lock ups.

    Thanks in advance, Sam.

    Remove the CPU overclock and retry testing the rig.
