Computer freezes randomly when doing anything.

    There are 2 different CPU temperature readings, Package (that on FX processors can hit 90c) and Per Core temperature at which at on or about 62c it should go into shutdown mode. Free version of CPID-HW monitor doesn't read core temps.

    That's true but his temps are too high nonetheless, particularly if you take into account the fact that he uses a water cooling system.
    @OP: I still think you should try to use a different cooling solution to see if it reduces the high temperatures. If you manage to bring down the temperatures and experience freezes nonetheless I'm afraid you will have to get another mainboard or reduce the frequency and probably also the voltage of your CPU. Oh, and before I forget it, do you use the latest firmware (bios)? On the Gigabyte website it says that in order to run the latest AMD AM3+ processors you need to update the firmware.
