I bought a new gaming PC about a month ago and it has just started to freeze and lock up. It freezes randomly, sometimes i will be playing Titanfall and i can go for hours without it freezing and sometimes i can play for 10 mins and t will freeze but not very often. It freezes on most of my steam games, mostly the ones that i dont think are very demanding like Magika and Netflix. I have dusted everything off, checked to make sure all wires are in place and properly connected, reinstalled windows 8.1, and reinstalled games.

Specs:
AMD Athlon X4 750K Quad Core Processor 3.40GHz
2x8 GB Kingston Hyperx Fury Black Ram 1866 MHz
AMD Radeon HD 7770
500GB WD Blue HDD + 2TB Seagate HDD @7200 RPM
650 watt Kingwin PSU

Can you try using a different Hard drive or testing your main hard drive for Errors
