system freeze (Athlon T-bird)

By rhino217 ·
My pc will freeze when it sits at the desktop, sometimes in minutes or up to hours. It will also freeze when I copy cd to cd. I have swapped ram, hard drives and all other components. I am running an AMD 950 t-bird w/ 512 mb ram, 64 mb geforce 2 gts, 300 watt ps, the motherboard was bundled w/ the processor and a fan. I have played with every bios setting imaginable (at least the ones i understand). My system is running 1.70 volts, system temp is 70f and cpu temp will run about 98-108. My only other theory is my motherboard is failing or it is overheating. Any suggestions. Thank You.

what OS and what motherboard you are using exactly? if it is with via kt133 than there must be a cd with ide and agp patches. apply patches, please.
