If the computer was freezing, you would need to look in the Application or System logs for symptoms, not Security.

When you say weird noises, do you mean random noises or does it sound like a fast loop of the last sound (often sounds a bit like a buzz type noise).

There are numerous possible causes, some of which below:

1) Heat issue. The GPU overheating / crashing can cause this, had a similar sounding problem with an older 8800GT I had.

2) Power supply. If the PSU is to weak or failing it can cause many many different types of problems which can be difficult to diagnose.

Is this a pre-built machine like HP, Dell, Acer etc or a self / custom build. If its pre-built what is the exact make and model and have you ever upgraded any hardware? If its a self/custom build what is the exact make and model of the motherboard, RAM, CPU, GPU, Power supply etc.

How old is the machine?

At first I thought it could be heat problem of the GPU or Sound Card because I was using two HD Radeons 5830 in crossfire with the sound card between the two. But I take off one video card and move the sound card to another PCI slot and still doing the same sometimes.

Right know I have good ventilation in the system, Im using this case http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&Sku=C283-1187 with 2 120mm fan and 3 240mm

The Power Supply is 850w.

The noise I cannot explain it :/ but is not a loop of the last sound. The noise is similar to the one that a microphone do when you tap it and scrub it.

M/B, RAMs, PS and CPU are new (like 4 months). Is something is overheating could be the CPU is a AMD Phenom II 1100T at 3.30 Ghz six cores with the retail fan and thermal compound

Right know my system is 41C and CPU is 38C (temperature)

Well, that CPU temps certainly isn't anything to worry about. Thats a decent enough case, however be aware that more fans does not necessarily mean better cooling. Where are the fans located and do they blow in or out of the case (don't think this will be a problem really based on your CPU temp and system temps).

Download and install HWMonitor (free), run it and screenshot its screen then, leaving HWMonitor running start up an a game or something that will stress the system a bit, run it for a few minutes then exit and screenshot HWmonitor again. Post the two screenshots in a reply here.

@Tanis - I have 1 fan on each side of the computer, front, back, top, bottom and the case door, all fans are blowing out exept the front one wich is blowing to the inside (cooling the hard drives)

I have HW MOnitor I will run Batman Arkhan Asylum at max settings tomorrow and make the print screen
