Default brand new comp freezes

3 days since putting (all new) parts together ,nine out ten times won't load OS if any ide drives attached (tried 4 of them,new ribbon cable ,work fine on other comps),once @ desktop (no ide) all browsers freeze momentarily (random),performance seems to stutter when cpu fan speeds or slows ,operates "normally " 60% - 70% of the time. fresh install of OS ,reseated all mem modules ,no over clock ,bios is at default ,all cable placement correct and secure.latest bios,all drives present and current, I've built and serviced my own comps,haven't seen this before.

any ideas ?
thanks
