pc freezes and fan spins fast

When this happens I have to hard reset the computer. Any idea what the issue is? It's a pretty new build, with a couple of things from my old build. I have;

new:
Windows 8.1 64-bit
i5-4670k
8 GB G Skill RAM
1 TB SATA 3 Seagate HDD
MSI Z87-G41 motherboard

old:
500GB SATA 2 HDD
GTX 460

  1. I think your computer over heats. try cleaning it up and put fans on the computer case. what computer case do you have?
  2. I'm not sure, the case came with a pre-built pc, but this only happens once in a while. When I play BF4 for hours, it never goes above 60C and the few times it froze I was doing something simple like web browsing.
  3. Idk, try cleaning the insides with compressed air, sometimes dust is leading cause of these types of problems.
  4. I have errors in Administrative Events but nothing that tells me what the problem was. Also say that a recent shutdown was unexpected but this doesn't tell me anything. Happens maybe once a week and everything is clean, since it's mostly new parts and a fresh OS.
  5. Wait does it freeze, or does the monitor turn off and says no signal.
  6. It freezes. The image stays on screen and my cpu fan goes wild until I hard reset. Just happened again when I was simply browsing the net. I checked the temperatures right away after reboot and it was normal (around 38C). Hasn't happened while doing anything intensive like gaming. I made sure I have all the latest drivers including BIOS ver. 1.4 (MSI mobo) and I did a virus and malware scan which turns up nothing.
  7. is it overclocked? If it is its not stable, try adding a little voltage. If its not overclocked try runing a chkdsk. Could be the old hdd if your runing that as the primary drive.
  8. There might be something wrong with your graphics card. do you still have warranty on it?
  9. No it's an old GPU (2010 I think lol). My system is not overclocked and I'm using my new drive as a primary (has my OS and other main programs/files on it) my old HDD is just storage for random stuff.

    EDIT: What's a "chkdsk" and how do I run it?
