Thanks for asking that, I forgot I solved that issue and hadn't updated the question. I updated the question accordingly. Thanks.

I think they mean operating USB 2.0 devices on USB 3.0 ports. It sounds like speculation to me though.

Sorry Renan, but is your last comment about Ubuntu or Prime95? Did you get ninja'd by Journeyman Greek?

I still haven't installed the graphics card; it is still in its box. I have seen improved behaviour after reinstalling the CPU (see my updated post). However, there are still freezing problems.

Even though I have installed Windows now, this is probably still a good step to take to ensure it isn't something about Windows? Perhaps a generic driver or something?

Also, I am using on-board graphics. I have a Radeon 7850 but haven't installed it yet. I don't want to complicate things until I work out what is going on.

I will give this a go I think. What are you hoping this will demonstrate if it does or does not work without freezing?

I am not upgrading, I am installing on a blank disc, and I use the setup process to format the disk before installation begins. I also successfully installed from the DVD to the same hard disk using another computer.
