    Hey guys,

    I would really appreciate your help! My computer is crashing more and more often... and I can't risk it breaking down now.
    After coming out of sleep (hibernate?) the comp. will sometimes freeze and I have to do a hard reboot. Often, the SSD, which is the primary drive, resets itself at the bottom of boot priority, and my computer tries to boot from CD and fails.

    I don't know if there are hardware issues, if my liquid cooling isn't working, etc.
    Please let me know your thoughts on how to figure out what the issue is.

    I have speedfan running to see if it's a temperature issue, but I'm not sure what qualifies as okay. HD3 is registered at 128C, and I don't know if that's OK. Also, it only shows one fan as working (at 1561 RPM??)

    Thanks so much for your help!

    BIOS changes (ie: boot order) would indicate a power or motherboard issue.

    Ensure you have a quality power supply that is large enough to support your hardware. Quality is more important and size.
