Have you cleaned your components of dust etc lately? Dust can lead to overheating which can cause lockups and freezes.

OK, what is the PSU rated at? And how many amps on the 12V rail(s). You can get this informantion by looking at the spec sticker on the side of the power supply.

OK, so you'll still have manufacturers 1 year warranty at least yes? all we need to do is find the faulty component.

We'll need full descriptions of the blue screen error codes to make diagnosing easier.
