Random Crashing No BSOD

My computer has been randomly crashing. The crashes are kind of strange... The audio coming out the speakers studders, then the mouse stops moving, and then everything on the monitors stop moving. No blue screen and it doesn't unfreeze even if I wait a long time (20-30 minutes). I have to do a hard reset to get the system working. The crashes typically happen soon (5-10 minutes) after I start the system, but can happen at any time.

I reinstalled windows, installed every windows update, installed all of the latest drivers listed on Gigabyte's website, flashed the bios, and the problem continues. Nothing is overclocked except the GPU which is factory overclocked. I've got all of the cables tied down and tucked away, and the air flow feels pretty good. I've run all of the diagnostics that I know of and nothing points to a problem.

I ran memtest and it showed all of the ram as being good.

I wonder if something is overheating.... Is there a listing of ideal temperature ranges for different hardware?

Any ideas? I've tried everything that I know to do.
