    Could something be broken?

    I've tried ten more installs with different settings and it's always the same. Freezes during install or the OS freezes as soon as it starts.

    Something is broken, question is what.
    Since you tried 2 different installations it's probably not the installation CD.
    All memory sticks can't be faulty either, so if you tried at least 2 of them in 2 different slots (one memory stick configuration, slot 1 and slot 2) we can assume it is not the memory (unless there is a compatibility issue with this model and the board).
    You tried 2 different hard drives, so it's probably not them either.
    Now it's down to the PSU, video card, board and CPU.
    If you can find other PSU/video card/CPU to test with it will be the best, otherwise you can contact GB support and try to get and RMA.

    Big surprise... iit suddenly worked? And I don`t really know why. But after installing with just one stick of ram and the SSD (for the dozenth time) I've now got all 8 GB or ram, six hard drives and two externals in and running without a freeze or shutdown.

    The only thing that won't go is the DWA-552 wifi card. It's not giving me unsigned driver errors anymore but code 10 'device can't start' errors. I've used the newest D-Lik drivers as well as atheroes drivers with no luck and tried both PCI slots with the same results. I may just buy a new card as apparently this one is a pain in windows 7 (although it was fine with the RC).

    I really appreciate all the help from everyone!
