Hi, I saw your comment on http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/256282-30-gigabyte-ep...

I would give a try on another usb mouse first like the user on that topic since you have one of the same brand, this can sound a little crazy but there are problems with some usb devices on gigabyte boards, maybe you can try to disable legacy usb on bios to see if it vanishes.

You said you installed some other OSes, what problem happened with them? complete freezes too or not complete freeze, same strange sound when it happens? Do you have any other usb device connected?

You can use Memtest86+ (http://www.memtest.org/#downiso) bootable cd to test your memory, but I am not sure if that is that case but if you want to be sure.. (FIY also hiren's boot cd, ultimate boot cd and Inquisitor have memtest86+)

BTW: the beast you assembled is way better performer than an iMac.. and is not ugly :D  , hope it can be sorted out soon.
