I currently have this PC:

Windows 7 Ultimate Edition
Motherboad : Asus M5A97 5.1 HD Audio
PowerSupply : 750Watt
CPU: AMD FX-8150 (8 core 3.6GHz)
Ram: 12 GB 1600Ghz (Gaming ram)
VideoCard: GTX 580 1.5GB PNY
CPU WaterCooling Heatsink
1.5Tb HDD 7200 RPM
256GB SSD 6GB/S
Case: http://benchmarkreviews.com/index. [...] &Itemid=61

A couple of months ago I had a Phenom II Quad Core 3.4Ghz, I was able to game, listen to music, check videos etc. I recently changed my Phenom II to a Eight Core 3.8ghz, at this moment, when I enter a game, for example, Crysis 2 (max video setting), at the beginning my hard-drive would make weird noises & my game would freeze. Sometimes, my pc would shut down, so I bought a SSD thinking that was the problem, reinstalled windows, my game, etc. The results.. no luck, still shutting down. Could my Powersupply be the problem? Or even my motherboard?

PLEASE HELP!!

I'm assuming Kentec is not a very good brand. Make sure the temperatures in your computer are not heating up too much.

Are you sure the HDD is making the clicking noise?
