Strange freezing issue with Windows 8

Tried Windows 8 for a week or 2 and during that time my PC would freeze almost every 5 mins to the second(yh,I timed it-lol) .
First thought was that it was some driver issue so i updated all my drivers -no joy.
Then my next guesstimate was that perhaps my HD was on the way out-tested using HD Tune,seatools and GSmartcontrol-no bad sectors and all measurements with working parameters,again no joy.
Next, a BIOS issue maybe?updated BIOS-wrong again.
Eventually gave up and went back to Windows 7 -no freezing now for 2 weeks,same as before W8 was installed.
A fair assumption would be that ther was some incompatibility issue with W8 but what,I've no idea.
Any help would be most appreciated because if I'm being honest,I quite like W8.

  1. I would bet its a log file being written to or purged by the system.

    Never considered that,waht kind of log file would be written every 5 mins,consuming all the PC's resources forcing it to freeze?
  3. Should have probably added that heat doesn't seem to be an issue either,31-33c idle and 50c on load for CPU,GPU 40c idle (Dual Screen mode) and 75c load.
