I have recently got a new PC case (NZXT Phantom) and moved all components over. After the move I noticed that my audio seemed to have some "Static and Choppiness" to it. After 3 days my PC seems to freeze after awhile. Anywhere from 15mins - 2hrs.

I have taken a detailed look at all connections then decided to take apart and re-assemble.

Upon disassembling, I noticed that I had 2 "TABS" from the I/O plate stuck in 1 USB, and the other in LAN. I have corrected this and put the PC back together. Also noticing that the "Rocker" on PSU is stuck/broken in the "ON" position (Could this be a problem?) The audio Doesnt seem to be AS BAD, but static and chopping still occurs. The PC is still freezing up but also NOT AS BAD. The PC has made 3 MEMORY DUMP files if these are any help.

Is there some tricks I could try (ie. CMOS BATTERY PULL) or a way to test for sure if it is a short on board?

PLEASE HELP.

Do the sockets in question work? Have you tried them?
