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.

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

I have tried one at a time and i upgraded my ram from 2x4 GB to the 2x8GB and i have also ran multiple memtests and no issues or solution

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