Windows 7: Computer Freezes randomly. I cant find the issue.

Computer Freezes randomly. I cant find the issue.

On Tuesday of last week (8-21-12) I turned on my PC like i always do. after about 10 minutes of being on and me opening up Diablo 3 my computer completely froze. nothing would respond not even Ctrl+Alt+Del. So i had to hard shut down the computer. After that a few hours later it did it again. this time i was just on internet explorer.

So with me being the way i am i Reformated my computer to see if that would solve the issue. and it has not.

So everyday now that i turn on my computer it seems to randomly Freeze. I have ran a windows Memory Diagnostic. I put it on Extra with Cache on and had it run 3 passes. it took about an hour and 20 min and windows found no errors or anything. I have NO idea what could be causing this. I dont wanna spend money if i can target the problem and replace the hardware thats bad.

I built this computer myself and it has had NO issues since i built it and this time i cant figure it out myself. I have turned to Seven forums because this community has helped me in the past.

Please is there anything i can run or do to try and locate the problem? Could it be a failing power supply? the one i have in there is a 4-5 year old 1000w psu. here are my computer specs.

Case - Corsair Obsidian 800D
Mobo - Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
CPU - Intel i7 930 2.80GHz
CPU Cooler - Corsair H70 water cooler
Ram - Corsair Dominator Triple channel memory 6GB
Video Card - EVGA Nvidia GTX 570 superclocked
PSU - Ultra X3 1000w
Sound Card - Creative sound blaster X-fi Xtremegamer
DvD drive - HP dvd1270
Fan controler - Lamptron FC5
Fans - 2x 120mm push-pull for H70 cpu cooler. 2x 120mm push-pull over HDD hot swap drive bay. 1x 120mm pushing air up and out case.

Computer freezes randomly, not sure of cause.
Hi, I've been having problems with my computer freezing randomly. It generally for about 5 seconds or so, usually when browsing using Firefox. Also, the mouse cursor doesn't change when highlighting a link or highlighting text, it sometimes turns yellow so I can't see it. Any ideas? Thanks
