I have an update on this issue. Since the logs in Linux are as useless as they are in Windows for diagnosing issues I have resorted to the old tried and true method of changing components. I first tried a new video card since I wasn't too fond of the one I originally had. The problem as continued. Next was I was starting to run low on storage space and went with installing an 8TB HDD and removing the RAID controller card along with the 4 HDD eliminating any possibilities of write errors from the RAID 10 I had. Going back to a more simple configuration with the 8 TB HDD didn't correct the issue. I next tried replacing the power supply which increased stability and greatly increased quietness because of it's far superior power control of the fans. Then eventually the computer would not boot anymore. I first changed the motherboard since I hated that ASUS motherboard I had because ASUS quality has gone down like a rock and ASUS lies about their specs. (RAID when it doesn't have RAID) I also replaced the CPU and the computer finally worked except for booting issues. It looks like the power supply did damage to the either the CPU or the motherboard or both. I will report back if it stays stable or not. I will post the boot issue in a new post.

I am going to mark this solved since the computer hasn't locked up anymore. It's too bad that no one could come out with diagnostics tools that actually works by telling you in plain English on what is causing kernel panics and any freezes. Who ever comes out with that would become as famous as Linus Torvalds.

You're looking for a complete detailed diagnosis and that's coming from someone who won't use the command line? Are you serious? Have you any remote idea how far out that is? How impossible you have made it?

I was about to react similarly - also to the previous post - but then I remembered that I already did that in my post #15.
Crippled succesfully pushed my buttons; I'm sure they had fun doing it, but it's not something I'm going to allow again.
No reason for name calling, but we know what people like that are commonly called on the interwebz.
