Question about Computers & Internet
Although I specialize in Laptops, I have one Desktop I built for myself and it runs on a P5B.
I'm running with an Intel E6400 2.13 GHz and the difference got me to thinking your processor could actually br the culprit. I'd look there before throwing in the towel on the MOBO.
Keep in mind that running benchmarks on it may not expose the glitch, even though I hate telling people to buy to troubvleshoot.
Still, if you need a new board, why not have the new chip anyway?

SOURCE: I am having issue with
Some ASUS boards feature a log in the BIOS (near admin setup if memory serves). Try looking for it, and see if there are any entries there.
You mention that you have already tested / swapped the memory out, have you tried removing half the memory (leaving only 2GB in place) and see if freezing problem remains? If it does, then replace the memory that was removed, and remove the other 2GB. It may take some time for testing between sessions.
What type of keyboard are you using? I suspect that it is 1) USB and 2) running through a hub. For testing purposes, consider using a PS2 keyboard if you still have the port for it.
When your computer freezes, what are the NUM Lock, Caps Lock, etc lights doing? Are they blinking by chance? They may not do anything on a USB keyboard, but sometimes, you will get an error code if a PS2 is used. Try it, nothing to lose.
Also when it freezes, what is the status of the hard drive light? Is it dark, or is it lit?
