I built this computer in May (2012), here are the specs..

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM





The computer is hooked up to a Antec 1100, and monitor is a like 20" Vizio connnected via HDMI.
I have downloaded all the latest drivers and run a Tuner GPZ? log to watch temps and such. Nothing really stands out. The only thing I can think of is it might be a RAM or GPU problem.

I'll be playing a game, usually on steam, sometimes not. The time varies, sometimes I can play for hours and then it wil happen. Other times, it will happen within 15mins. Just last night I got the "blue screen of death" twice for unknown reasons. I'm just trying to find out whats wrong while I still have some warranty's.

Any and all help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

**Also, if you guys need anymore info, just let me know.

My games vary from Dead Island, DayZ, Civ 5...I don't know if that matters or not.

I suggest you try a driver update then run Memtest then check you temps while running OCCT 1st the CPU test then the GPU test.
Did this always happen or has it just started and is anything overclocked?
