Battlefield 4 Crashing after hardware upgrade

I recently upgraded my CPU to a i7 4790k and got 16 more gigs of RAM, adding to the 8 I already had. Since this update BF4 seems to randomly freeze up while I'm playing, sometimes I can play for 1-2 hours sometimes I can only play for 15 minutes. I went through and updated all of my drivers and updated my BIOS, then I tried taking out my new RAM and just using the old 8 gigs but it still freezes. When it does crash my CPU is around 65-70 C and my GPU is around 50 C

Specs:
CPU-Intel i7 4790k
GPU-Power Color 7950
Mobo-MSI Z87-GD67
RAM-24 Gigabytes of G.Skill Ripjaw
Power Supply-750W Corsair
Battlefield is running off of a WD Black 1TB drive
I am monitoring heat with CPUID Hardware monitor
Using Windows 8

  1. Is it only on BF4? What does the crashing error say? I'm having BF4 Problems too but I know mine isn't a hardware issue, so we gotta find out if its hardware or just BF4 for you :)
  2. There is no crashing error, the game just locks up and i have to kill it through task manager, and it is only Battlefield 4 that does this

    Have you tried to fully uninstall BF4?
  4. I haven't tried that yet, only because with my internet it would take a while to re-download, that would be a last resort, though I did just repair it in Origin and I'm going to try that out

    EDIT: Repaired the game and it continues to crash, reinstalling the game now
    EDIT 2: After game is reinstalled, still crashes help please :)
