Hi there, I've been having problems with my computer over the past year or so and have replaced pretty much everything under the sun from the power supply to the ram, the motherboard, and even the hard drive. My computer will just freeze up randomly it can be 10 mins to 3 days between the freezing intervals and i'm not sure what is causing it.

PC specs:
Intel Core I5
500GB Seagate Hard Drive
12GB RAM (8GB G Skill Trident, 4GB RIPJAW)
Asus Motherboard i5 compatible
Fatality 750W Power supply.

Things I have tried:
Using different hard drive, replacing the ram, using different motherboard, disabling audio driver, etc.) All to no avail, any help would be appreciated.

Find an xmp profile and set the RAM to 1600 MHz and no more than 1.5 volts

Your problem will almost certainly disappear instantly

Alright, I'll try that butI ran into another issue when i powered down my computer I can't turn it back on.
The power supply is not dead i checked it with a paperclip. The motherboard isn't getting power to start up the computer, the fans won't spin etc. It says it has power (the green led on the motherboard) but it won't start up or do anything.

Disconnect the front panel switches . Power and reset .

Try starting it by touching the tip of a screwdriver across the start pins on the mb for a fraction of a second .

If that works the case switch are faulty
