Hello friends, so I build this PC back in October of 2012, and I made a huge effort for months on end after i built it to stop the random freezing, but instead i just dealt with it cause i didnt have money at the time. But here i am trying to fix it again, anyway i wish i had good detail about the freeze / crashes but it is EXTREMELY random, it can happen idle on my desktop, can happen in game, and it just freezes my screen, cant move mouse, no audio, no control+alt+delete, and i have to hard reset my computer. So anyone please any questions anyone has im willing to answer, here is my setup that i built almost 1 year ago:

ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77

Core i5-3450 Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz LGA1155 77W Quad Core Processor

Corsair Builder Series CS600 600 watt power supply ATX12V 80 Plus Bronze certified

EVGA GeForce GTX650Ti SSC 1GB

DDR3 16GB 1600 DUAL VIPER by Patriot

SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

start with the motherboard and the ssd. make sure you have the newest bios and firmware on them. on your asus mb make sure the ssd on the intel sata 6g port not the asmedia one. in the bios make sure the mb running in standard mode and xmp profile is on. use hdtune to look for any hardware failure on the ssd. the last is try another power supply to see if the old one not holding or is rippling out.

Well i should've specified, i ran an HDD on my old computer that never froze before building this one and used that HDD for the first 3 months on this new PC build before getting the SSD. So it froze both with old HDD and new SSD, SSD is in the 6g port most definitely, as for ram and bios, i updated the bios to current and it is on the xmp profile setting, however i dont remember seeing a standard mode setting? i could go look for that.

if you installed windows xp on the ssd you have to run an aliment program first. use cpu-z and gpu-z to read your system info see if your ram and gpu are running right.

I upgraded my SSD to a 840 series SSD.
My system also has random lock-ups.
I built my system with a smaller SSD (120 gb) with no lock-ups at all.
Win 7 64bit ultimate version from the start.
I cloned the drive without issue.

I had the exact same style of freezing for about 3 months with an HDD that i KNOW was in working condition before the build, then i just upgraded to an SSD because of load times, freezing problem was still there.

start with bootdisk with memtest86 on it and see if the ram passes. use hardware monitor to check your temps and power supply voltages.
