Computer Freezing and makes noise, Please help!

So I've had my computer for about 4 years now. However, I upgraded it 6 weeks ago and this problem has occurred around 10 times now. The first two times it happened, I was just playing videogames and it just froze up on me and made a weird constant buzz noise till I forced it to shut down. The third time I was playing video games but I loaded up a video on my other monitor and halfway through the video it froze up and made the same buzz noise.
However, one time I was on skype when this occured and heard my friends talk in extreme slow motion (they sounded like a robot I should add) and they could not hear me.
This problem did not occur prior to reinstalling windows, and upgrading a new motherboard and processor.
Now, I have run my core temp and the processor is not at all defective, they all stay around 40 degrees Celsius. However, my graphics card can go up to about 90 C (194 F) but usually is around 80 C (176 F) when gaming. I know these are high temperatures and I feel as if the problem lies within my graphics card but to be honest, I really don't know.

My computer specs:

Cpu: i5 4440 (recently upgraded)
Mobo: Asus Z87-A (Recently upgraded)
OS: Windows 7 64bit (reinstalled because of Mobo)
Video: GTX 560 Ti 1gb
Ram: 6gb ddr3

Thanks so much guys!

:welcome: Zerkyl

Can you tell us the brand and model name or number of the PSU (power supply unit).

Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

To capture and post a screenshot;

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

Depending on the results we may need to run further software for comparison http://www.cpuid.com.../hwmonitor.html
