I know that there are many questions very similar to this on the website but mine is slightly different. This crash only happens in the middle of games and seems to have a slight pattern. so far it happens the most while playing skyrim (heavily modded, but not graphically). In my head i have chalked it up to the fact that i am using intel i5 integrated graphics and not a GPU, but i have doubts since the game runs like a dream up until the crash. my full build is http://pcpartpicker.com/user/DK_Pooter/saved/4rFA

i dont think it is a power issue since i have had the issue when ther was plenty of power and i dont think it is a ram issue (but im no expert).

nope nothing. I have noticed though that it usually happens during explosions or visual blooms such as large magic in skyrim.

nope, no errors or anything. boot back up and its like nothing hppened. when it crashes i only know because the audio makes a sound like the beginnning of an audio file being played on loop and the screen freezes until i restart it.

find and try a separate gpu..might solve the problem..since it is an integrated gpu there might be slight problem with some games...
