@GeneO I guess nevermind about those errors most of them are from 2012 and none that i looked at are important by any means, installaton errors for programs/games etc.

@gregrocker How do i go about doing that? would that be on that list of troubleshooting?

Universal solution: When nothing works, reinstall Windows. Check the task manager to see who's using your CPU.

There are three columns in Event Viewer: 1) last hour, 2) 24 hours and 3) 7 days.

I would click on Critical and see what is listed for the last hour. Hopefully, it's not 12,000.

Once the items under Critical are "dealt" with, we then move on to Errors and repeat the process.

If it's hardware-related, a reformat and reinstall may or may not solve the problem.

Several of us have asked: what is the Event Viewer reporting as Critical events within the last hour of PC usage? If there are several sources listed, mention them.

While Windows 7 has been reinstalled, were other 3rd party software reinstalled, as well? Are any security-related?

Your specifications said custom-built. By your own hands? If the processor is suspected, have you used software to measure CPU temperature? Perhaps a physical visit to the CPU, thermal paste and cooling fan may be needed.
