    FX 8350 intermittent freezing


      Not long after I upgraded my CPU from a 6-core FX 6300 to an 8-core FX 8350 I have been experiencing random freezing whereby the HDD LED stays lit (solid, no flickering) & during this time, which usually lasts for 1 or 2 minutes, the PC is unresponsive to any action I perform (any actions are queued & are performed when the freezing ends). I've changed mobo (same model), RAM, PSU, HDD & even clean installed Win 7 Pro x64 but the problems remains.

      As a last resort I swapped back the old CPU (FX 6300) & the problem appears to have gone away! Has anyone else had a similar problem?
