New computer won't start with more than one HD (the SSD with the OS), unless it's in safe mode, and it's locking up.
I built this rig about six months ago. It's got an i7 4770k 16GB of DDR3 Nvidia 760 GTX Samsung 120GB SSD Gigabyte Z87-D3HP motherboard Enermax 750W PSU. Running 7 Home Premium.
The system won't boot properly when it's got more than one drive installed. And by that, I mean CD's in the disc tray and USB drives included.
I've updated the BIOS to the newest version, checked the other drivers, bought a new secondary hard drive, and nothing is fixing it. I can't do anything at all anymore without the computer locking up every 5-10 minutes.
It's not a heat problem, the CPU is water cooled and the case is basically a giant fan. I've checked for heat anywhere, any signs or smell of electrical contact where it shouldn't be, changed the power cables, surge protector, and everything else I can think of.
The only thing I haven't done yet is reinstall Windows. The only reason I haven't is because at this point, I'm not even sure it would maintain the power through the install. Should I do it on the 500GB extra HDD I've got or do it on the SSD?
Any help here would be appreciated, I'm kind of losing it when it comes to patience. I feel like Melvin from Office Space. If it happens one more time, I'll, I'll burn this building to the ground.
Any suggestions before I completely lose my mind and burn the building down?

Is this store bought?
No, I built it. I just ran it in safe mode, updated all of the drivers under their support section again, and am seeing how it holds up.
