So I have the components already.

mobo: Fm2a75 pro 4
processor: AMD A10-5800k
graphic: APU of AMD A10-5800k
ram: Signature Line DDR3 2x4Gb PSD38G1600KH
psu: diablotek DA series 500watt
OS: windows 7
it keeps crashing/freezing with green or pink pixels/not able to boot at times without reinstalling ram and cpu and clr cmos , even though it passed memtest 86, and I was wondering what I can do to fix it.

What do you mean by crashing? Does it freeze? Do you get a BSOD? What's the model number for your PSU?

PSU: diablotek DA series 500watt atx supply
it freezes with green pixels/ sometimes pink, restarts, mostly doesn't boot up (then I install ram and cpu again and clear cmos ),
before I replaced my memory moduals with new ones I would get bsod

There is a VERY good possibility that POS Diablotek PSU is causing your freezing issues. A quality PSU is the most important component in your system since it provides power to all the sensitive parts of the computer. A cheap PSU doesn't provide clean power and causes all sorts of stability issues. I would replace your PSU with a quality unit ASAP. This PSU is a high quality unit that happens to be a great deal after a $10 promo code and $25 mail in rebate.

Though you've not provided more details, but it seems like PSU is making trouble for you. To be sure, if you can arrange another PSU and plug it in to check if this really is PSU issue or not, it would be better. Don't buy PSU straight away without confirming the actual source of problem.

alright ill look into it, though I doubt its the psu, I should just overhaul my question completely. Sorry if I caused any confusion over my lack in details, this is my first question on this forum. What I like about my mobo is that it comes with a dr.debug LED on the board so I'll put up what happens with that and all the info about it, thanks Memo.
