So I've been experiencing BSOD's after fresh installs. BSOD stops and computer's 2nd hdd becomes very slow until whole pc freezes each process after each click. Then a hard reset is a must. My computer rig:

i7 4770
XFX R7870 DD
Samsung 160gb SSD - Primary HDD
1TB WD Green - Second HDD
VS550W Power Supply
Vengeance® — 8GB Dual Channel DDR3
4gb Crucial Ballistix Sport
Some Gigabyte motherboard. (Computer is placed in a somehow hard to reach area.)
About 5 fans with led lights
Huge ass heat sink with a generic fan (Forgot what brand)

unplug the hdd and keep only the ssd on to see if you still have bsod it could be also a good idea to check system for update on everything .

The first thing I would do is make sure all of your drivers are up to date. Also if it is hard to reach make sure it is getting good airflow.

I've tried stripping all the components except for the 1tb hdd and cpu. Still the same, I wanted to try the ssd but I've already switched my laptop's hdd with it. I'm guessing I'm saving up for a new hdd. The problem worsens though and sometimes my computer wouldn't start up, not to even start booting up. My back fan starts slowly then stops then the computer turns off or on. It has a mind of it's own. I've also notice the case fans without the 4pin connector are really slow right now compared with my last build.

Unplug your pc before you remove and put back cmos battery.
