Out of the Blue

I am very stubborn about problem solving, which is one of the reasons I keep clinging to the hope that I will somehow straighten out the issues with my PC. I am, however, coming to the conclusion that there is an issue with my motherboard, as it's hard to come up with an explanation that encompasses the inconsistent results I'm getting from my troubleshooting. It's gotten to the point where I am strategizing my next build, so on some level I've given up the idea that this will be solved through software. The budget for this will have to go past the $0 I have earmarked, and my goal is to make a machine that's fast and quiet, which will make it that much harder to stay cheap. At this point I'm considering a last gen i5 like the 3570K and overclocking the snot out of it, perhaps using liquid cooling, though I haven't really investigated the cost/performance tradeoffs of getting a faster CPU and using air cooling, which will make the case and cooler cheaper.
