Hello Tom's forums,

I just built a new pc...(second time doing this) and I have a weird problem. Sorry if this is posted in the wrong department or if its possibly been posted before. My problem I am having is my pc will lock up during games and only games ex...CoDBO2, Battlefield 4, CoDWAW, and even 3D mark 11. Its weird when it locks up. Sometimes It locks up and I can still hear myself moving and shooting but the pictures locked up. Sometimes it just locks up all together and I have to Ctrl Alt delete and close the application. Then sometimes it will lock up wait a few seconds and the game starts back and your good to go. Do not know if this matters or not but I have never had it lock up till I had to physically hit the power or reset button to get my computer back going....Ctrl Alt Delete has always worked. It has never locked up within windows...just seems to do it with 3d intense games.

My temps are not the problem...I don't think my temps are a problem I will give them along with my specs and they will be from using the program CpuZ.

My specs along with temps:
Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 Temp:27c Load:not much change
AMD FX-8350 Temp:31c Load:41c
G-Skill RipJaws DDR3-1866 PC3-14900 8x2sticks
Samsung 840 evo SSD Temp: 27c Load: not much change
EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked 4gb Temp:24c Load:45c
Microsoft Windows 8.1

Another note is I have changed nothing in bios but everything seems to be registering ok.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post and thanks for any advice anyone may have.

Colby

What PSU are you using? It might be you are low on power.
