First the lock ups in bios. did you clear the cmos and load the bios defaults? If not do so and see if the problem continues.

Now the hardrive, you need to format and reinstall the OS because of changing motherboards,
Did you do so?

Report your voltages and temps from bios if possible.

Run Memtest86 on the ram and report back what you find
