Have you verified that there are no hardware issues before assuming the issue lies with the OS? Random freezing can be caused by many things - overheating, poorly seated components, mismatched or faulty components, insufficient power, etc. That said, there are many reports of newer kernels causing similar problems, perhaps you could try booting an older/different version of linux or perhaps Windows to see if you still have issues?

I don't know the issue and I tried everything I could think of. For whatever reason Ubuntu runs perfect on the same hardware. In the end I want to move to Mint because I like the UI much better.
