    is it always the same applications that cause an issue, or does the issue move?

    It is usually the same, but that's a majority of the apps giving problems..

    I'm sensing it's a problem with the motherboard.. I'll get a used one off eBay and see if that fixes things..

    check your local craigslist or other local buy'n'sell... buying online has never netted me good results. atleast if you are buying from a person locally you can usually test the board before you buy it...

    I currently have a stack of 2-3 boards that were bought online that "work" but don't do what they are suppose to do.

    Vin
    Main Rig
    OS = Win8.1
    CPU = i7-980X @ 4.17Ghz 144x29 cooled by custom Loop
    Mem = 12GB 2000Mhz corsair Dominator GT at 2010Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-2T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3 e770
    GPU = 2x Sapphire r9 290x in xfire
    HD = 2x Toshiba 120GB Raid 0 (580MB Read/140MB Write)
    Storage = 2TB WD Black
    PSU = EVGA SuperNOVA 1300w
    Case = Cooler Master HAF-X 945

    HTPC / Home Server
    OS = Win7 64Bit running XBMC HTPC Front end with Windows Server 2011 Virtual Machine with 8GB ram assigned for homer server with exchange
    CPU = AMD 1090T
    Mem = 16GB 1600Mhz Kingston RED Limited Edition running at 1600Mhz
    MB = Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup
    PSU = Corsair TX750
    Case = Too embarrassed to mention.

    Just an update... So I bought a used motherboard, cpu, memory combo on eBay.. and the problem STILL persists! I am going to try to format a fresh HD and see if the problem still happens and if the problem is the OS. I am really reluctant to format because there are so many apps I no longer have the install for.

    Wow, that really sucks and only brings with it more questions rather than answers.

    Something I just thought of but are you using the same case? I ask because maybe you've got some sort of grounding issue?

    It is the same case..

    I found the issue might be the hard drive.. I ran Seagate Tools from the freshly formated drive and it reported a short test error on the drive.. It's still under warranty so I'll send it back and see what happens.

    OS corruption is common with a bad OC. thought I've never seen it cause a HD to fail... but I've had to restore my OS from a backup when pushing memory OC.
