My PC has been randomly freezing and slowing down doing the most simple tasks, like opening a folder or sending a text file to the recycle bin, browsing Facebook(shock wave flash plug-in also becomes unresponsive from time to time). Sometimes the hole system just becomes unresponsive for minutes.

I thought it was a windows problem, so I formatted the HDD and installed windows. But the annoying behavior persisted even after the fresh install.

My Specs:

BIOSTAR Group A880GU3
AMD Phenom II 819 4x @ 2.60
8GB ram
windows 7 ultimate sp1 64bits on a 1 TB HDD
another 1TB HDD for storage
No graphics card yet
Extra fan

What do you think this might be?

Did you install the chipset drivers that came with the board?

Some common causes are heat and failing power supply (PSU).
