Hey! i recently custom built a £750 pc and i really enjoy it however it keeps crashing randomly even without playing games sometimes and it's really bugging me, i will list my specs and i heard people say things may be interfering with my OC graphics card which freezes the pc, anyway the components:
GPU: GeForce GTX 770
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4670K CPU @ 3.40GHz
Memory: 8.00GB RAM
Driver Version 331.82 (drivers up to date)
power supply ocz 700w modxstream pro

When you say crashing, what is happening? Do you get a blue screen? Is it just hard locking/freezing and you have to manually shut it down? Does it just turn off completely? Are you getting any error codes? Try to explain exactly what happens for us :-)

You also mentioned "my OC graphics card" - are you overclocking your card?

No problem mate, does it crash when you aren't overclocking? Try setting your card to stock and see if the problem persists.

Haha no problem, so it is a factory overclocked card? What is the make and model? I thought you meant you were overclocking the card yourself :-P If it is indeed factory OCd, then it will have been tested for stability before it left the factory.

Ok cool, we will rule that out then, they are pretty good at testing stability of those cards. Our only option at this point is to switch out parts to find out which one is the problem, which might not be too easy if you are new to this stuff. I have spare parts from my old PCs around the house in case I need to troubleshoot. Switching out power supplies, RAM sticks, and GPUs for known working ones can either help rule them out or label them the culprit. If you have the ability that would be my next step, maybe your friend who built the PC for you can help?
