Windows 7: Not BSOD but freezing

That's progress .
Now try using it in a the middle (2nd one down) PCI-e slot on the motherboard.
Keep in mind that is a physical 16x slot but it's wired at 8x so it might not crash when using the
GPU in question the true test is to run the GPU in true 16x mode on a different motherboard if you have access to one
the flip side of that is to use a different GPU in the true 16x slot in your current configuration.

Update: I have not reinstalled the video card yet, and it just froze.

Ideas for next steps?

Did it froze completely, hard hang? or did it just froze for a few moments then resumed?

Are long do you have the SSD for?

Hello Yoyo,
It freezes completely. It has never froze for just a moment then resumed. I let it sit for about 10 hours and it never recovered or bsod.
ALL components in this computer are new, so the SSD is as old as everything else, about 6 months.

Do you have a spare SATA Data, you might as well try a different SATA Power) cable you can try?
Also try a different Port on the motherboard.

i agree with yoyo on the part that if you have a spare motherboard; that may be the best route to try next. If you dont; then yes i would try as well replacing the cables and making sure everything is "seated" properly.

I do not have a spare ssd. It's actually the msata, so there is only 1 slot
Newegg.com - Plextor M5M PX-128M5M mSATA 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

And I updated the firmware on the drive a month ago or so.

I've submitted a support request to gigabyte. I'll report back with what they say.

So far nothing with Gigabyte. They asked a bunch of questions and I think want to troubleshoot the secondary hard drive...
It's been BSOD like crazy recently though, which is progress since it actually give some report of whats going on. Looks like ndis, which from what I've read is network related.
I've already updated the USB wireless adapter drivers, so I'm leaning toward more motherboard/usb problems.
I'm really at wits end here...I'm about ready to just scrap this 1k system and build a new one....
