comment Strange performance from RAID5 using WD RE4 disks
I am still having issues, found more issues with the processor and tracked it down. This motherboard was discontinued due to a VRM issue, MSI is issuing me a replacement motherboard / upgrade (MSI 970A-G46) which they insist will resolve the issues. The additional issue I found was pushing the CPU to it's max resulted in a faulty readout of 255ºC on the CPU and a clock from 3.3GHZ to 800MHZ (16.5x multiplier to 4.0) - I'll report back when this has been confirmed.

Ah, I see what you meant, I thought you meant a power connection on the circuitboard itself. I can take a look at the GPU later and see if one has indeed come loose.

unfortunately I'm not very skilled in the electrical realm, I wouldn't even know where to begin to look. Will have to look to see if they'll take it back.

Yeah, this happened only recently. I'm almost sure what Hand-E-Food said is correct. It worked great at first, then this without overheating. I live near train tracks so a loose connection would become worse with each train.

comment Cleaned computer and hard disk doesn't spin up anymore
There's not really enough information here to determine it's dead, or what's wrong, let alone suggesting putting it in the freezer.

comment Cleaned computer and hard disk doesn't spin up anymore
Are you sure the power cable to the HDD is powered? Also how did you go about cleaning the system? Something that slightly concerns me here is you mentioned you didn't take apart the hard drive. Just to be clear, you do know under no circumstances it should be taken apart. This kind of leads me to wonder how the PSU was cleaned.
