    Default random freezes with Asrock 990FX Extreme3 and FX8120,any help finding cause?

    Dear members,
    I bought all new components 3 weeks ago,and my sistem is as follows:
    MB: Asrock 990FX Extreme3
    CPU AMD FX 8120 FX with stock cooler
    RAM Kingston KHX1600C9D3 2X4GB @ 1600MHz.
    PSU: Fortron Raider 650 W
    HDD: WD Green 1TB drive (sistem)+separate 500 GB WD green
    chasis: Aerocool VX-e
    optical drive:Pioneer DVD-RW.
    Only my graphic card is old one but worked normally in other pc.It's ATI HD 4650 512MB DDR 3
    I tested my pc with all kinds of software (OCT,Intel burn test,aida64 stab. test) for voltage stability and temperatures.My cpu goes max 61 C in full load , in idle round 45 C.And voltages that I get under full load are stable.
    I played some games,and first froze was in a pc game after like 15 min of playing,second and third while browsing over internet and forth while watching a mp4 video.It just hangs with weird sound and it freeze.I had to reboot it.It just happens maybe after 2-3 hours of work,but 3 x it happened in Windows.
    I went through pc mark7 and 3d mark06 test went normal,no freezing.
    This stock cooler is very loud and in some moments it gives me even 5500 rpm.After the reboot I went to BIOS to read temperatures,I got cpu temp round 46 C,mainboard 41 C I think.
    I've tested RAM with memtest86 no errors,went through OCT with 1h test no errors.I've put xmp profile for RAM in BIOS.
    I've installed all the drivers from a CD I got with my MB,and put cataylst newest drivers (before this beta release).
    All the time I was downloading something so my network card was working (I've installed broadcom drivers too).
    Any help what causing this would be much appreciated.The problem is I bought components in other country so it's hard for me now to ask for warranty...and I still don't know what is causing problems..
    If anyone could know what could it be,I'd do as you say.

    Get a program like HWiNFO(64?) and monitor your temps and if allowed the HS fan rpm too.

    Intermittent dodgy/bad HS fan?
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    what's HS Fan?I did used hwinfo program and sometimes in some cases when my cpu temp goes like 50 C my fan speed goes like even 5500 rpm.
    I know there were some situtations while I was monitoring that hwinfo or was it hw monitor it gave me 0 rpm speed info,which was quite unusual.
    When I tested my computer with occt,intel burin in test or aida64 fan was so loud but temp of cpu was maximum 62 C,fan reached 5800 rpm as was shown.
