This is Hippi friend, he showed me this topic, he made. I thought that by signing up I could help get this solved by talking to you as well, I ran memtest and for some odd reason the program wouldnt work at all, so I skipped using that as I already dont think the ram is the issue. I tested the harddrive using segate seatools for windows. I also used prime95, this is where i found the issue, I ran the program along side running core temp to see how hot my cpu was getting it did not pass 85C, and all of the sudden i got the same results like i was running a game, where it would lock up and make the humming noise out the speakers, I had to hard re-boot the pc, funny thing is it seems to only do this when under load. AS of right now I have reinstalled some drivers using sim tools and have been using prime95 for about a few mintues and so far i seem in the clear though it took about 10 for it to lock up when using prime95.IM starting to think that drivers might have been the issue, coretemp shows that the pc is under 100% load on all cores and im not having an issue, but like i said it takes about 10mins. I will edit this post again when i think 10mins have passed. But drivers dont make sense, I upgraded to win 8 about a month ago, and i have had the pc do this to me while running windows 7, and since i bought the PC from iBuypower, it had everything installed i would think.
Here a screenshot of using prime95 after 10mins of testing. http://imgur.com/aKz0A last night i ran the program and it froze up, but with the new drivers like the ss it seems fine?
