Steam games freezing after hardware upgrade, PLEASE HELP!

So I recently upgraded my rig, I put a i5 4690k and an asus z97-a in it with my 7950. At first there were no problems but then one day... All my steam games started freezing on me. It started with garrys mod, then cs go and now I can't play anything but terraria oddly. I know that there's a steam issue because non-steam games like battlefield 4 and farcry 3 (origin and uplay) both work, so whats the issue guys? I've tried re-installing steam and games alike and neither work. Please help, I want my games back.

Edit: Just want to point out that not all the freezes are the same, some freeze at title screen, some freeze at main menu and some let me play for a few minutes, it varies but freezes none the less.

  1. Does the whole system just lock up on you? Or can you recover from it?

    I can't alt+tab out but I can ctrl alt delete, switch user and then sign back in to get to the desktop. Then ctrl alt delete, task manager, then usee tab + arrow keys to select it then spacebar on end task
  3. You have to switch users in order to get back to the user of the desktop you play games with? No end task options for the game that froze up on you?
