    The computer freezes when gaming or idling for a long time. Have to hard reset it.

    I recently bought a new Thermaltake 650W PSU and another R9 270X (Now in Crossfire). But this has been happening more often.

    I have a feeling its my Seagate Barracuda 1TB Hard-drive is faulty.Not sure if it is.

    Your computer specs show you're using IObit Advanced SystemCare Ultimate.

    These type of apps can damage the Windows operating system and wreak havoc with a computer.

    That may be part of your issue.

    Why not test the drive? Here is a link to seatools for dos. This is the boot version so it removes windows from the issue;

    Next have you done any basic troubleshooting? If not, test your temps and voltages; specifically the cpu temp, system temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values. Post those here. Since you have an asus board, you can download and install asus probe [available on the support page for your mb]
    http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/item/seatools-dos-master/
    Note you do have the "LE" version of the mb. I always say that LE stands for low end. That is a budget mb from asus and as such, it is not up to the stress of hard gaming and or overclocking.

    You can also run memtest. Again this runs from a boot disk so it removes windows from the diagnostic.
