I installed the Gigabyte 870A-UD3 Motherboard and AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Quad Core CPU in a computer for my Grandson. It seems to be working with one exception. The processor is idling at 800...

Personally I don't like sites that try to install drivers for you. sometimes they do all right but , sometimes they may install generic updates that don't work or make matters worse. A prime example, is if you try to update a driver for a graphics card. Your best bet for driver updates is to get them from the manufacturer of the software.
This is Gigabytes link for downloads. There are a couple of different options depending on your revision.
You also have AMD chipsets and, I'm guessing, an ATI/AMD graphics card. I'm not familiar with "darksider so if you can give me the model number of your card I can help you further or, if you know how to enter info definately get your card updtaes through here:

My guess is that the RAID adapter (either a separate add-in PCI card, or integrated into the motherboard) is intermittently failing.

Either replace that add-in card, or replace (under warranty???) the motherboard.

I have a dell desktop and am wanting to remove the old hard drive and install the AMD Phenom II X2 550 3.10 GHz Processor - Dual-core. I have never done anything like this before, and am wondering if this...

First of all you can't replace a hard drive with a CPU (AMD Phenom X2 is a processor), second your computer supports only socket 478 CPU's ( that means no AMD Phenom only older Intel Pentiu 4/Celeron CPUs. My recommendation is to replace the motherboard and CPU altogether. But since your knowledge is relatively low i think you should not do it by yourself.
