Fresh Install, Multiple Issues; Please Help

I recently did an almost total upgrade
CPU - 4670k
Motherboard - Z87-GD65
PSU - Seasonic 760+80 Plat
GPU - Striker GTX760-P-4GD5

I did a clean wipe and reinstalled Win 7 Ultimate after formatting my 1.5TB drive. After installing my updates, flashing my BIOS, and updating all of the drivers, I'm still having problems. In the beginning my screen would freeze when moving the mouse or even typing on the keyboard for a few seconds then go back to normal only to repeat multiple times a minute. That has since stopped (I don't know what stopped it) and when I try and play any games (I tried CS:GO) the sound gets all choppy and my screen freezes forcing me to reset. Can anyone help? Thank you.

  1. Did the build work before you installed W7?

    Have you overclocked cpu or gpu?

    What ram?
    What HDD?
    What case?

    Download HWInfo and run Sensors and post the results - usually 3 screenshots in TinyPic or similar. To see the health of your build - temps, voltages, etc

    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pRDxRB is my current build. I have never overclocked and I couldn't test the build because I was switching over from a previous AMD build to an Intel mb and cpu. It boots up and gets me in there I just can't figure out why my games keep crashing. I'll get back to you with the Sensors pics.
  3. You've got two different types of RAM. Why? Mobos don't like running with different ram. You should only put identical ram in. Pull the Kingston out. Make sure the GSkill is in the right slots (per mobo manual) and try again.

    Looks like your cpu voltage is slightly high and overclocked and warm. Your gpu is cool and on idle.

    Your psu seems to have too high 12V reading (13.248V). Can you check 12v, 5v and 3.3v readings in bios/uefi?

    Are you still getting problems now with just the GSkill ram fitted?

    Everything is working fine with the removal of the Kingston ram.. I feel like an idiot as I've been working on computers for years. Thank you for your help.
  7. No worries.

    You should double check those pus voltage readings though. If the 12V is outside 11.8 to 12.2 then look at getting a new one. See http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html - get tier 1, 2a or 2b.
