Thanks for taking the time for the explanations Xaltar - great info and definitely helped me understand!

Unfortunately, although I think the issue might be partly thermal related, I'm not sure that's the full story. I did a test last night with the USB fan blowing across the components and although it lasted a bit longer, it decided to freeze eventually. 

I'm starting to think, based on a lot of other reboots of freezing, that perhaps either its not VRM heat related or that the VRM is very picky about the temperature and is tripping at lower temps than it should.

I'll probably be getting hold of the supplier of the motherboard to discuss options - either try a replacement or perhaps choose a different brand/model as I've read stories about boards that start off ok but fail after a period of months.

FYI I've RMA'd the board now and waiting on a credit hopefully to switch to a different motherboard.

I actually wonder if ASRock are doing a quiet "recall" on this board as, although it was quite common in the webshops in NZ when I purchased it, it now appears to have disappeared from almost every shop and the couple that do have it now have it on "special order". (Conspiracy theories are great huh? :D)

Did the motherboard replacement solved your issue? Was not it related to memory (RAM) modules?

I highly doubt the OP will respond, this is a 3 year old post now. If you need help
with a specific issue please make your own thread and list your full system specs.
