I just got finished building a whole new system with a i5 750 on the asrock p55 extreme mobo. I have 4 gb of g.skill trident 2000 memory and 500gb samsun hdd with a 750w corsair power supply. Videocard is radeon 5770.

I noticed onced I got everything hooked up the computer will just freeze as soon as I start up a game or more is required of the cpu/system.

I had a zalman fan on there also and went back to the original stock intel fan to see if that would help, still freezes.

ran the windows memory diagnostics, no problems found.

System is freshly installed with windows 7 with updated videocard driver.

Any reasons why this system would be freezing the way it has been??

When I checked the cpu temps when I had the zalman fan on there I was getting 25-29 degrees on each core with the stock intel fan it was low 30's.

Please please please please help me troubleshoot this problem!

Test your memory with Memtest86 or other free software. Use only 1 memory module at a time.

Make sure you set the correct voltage to the memory, as recommended by GSkil.

Actually the video card drivers had to be updated again.. it went from being rated 6.0 on win7 to being rated 7.4 after the updated drivers that were released late december. Once the videocard drivers were updated it stopped freezing on me.

However once that problem was fixed the motherboard stopped reading both of my memory sticks, would only read 1 2 gig stick no matter which way I put it so I had to return the motherboard.

Have you tried to set the timing of your RAM manually following the official specification?

Do NOT use the specification given by the XMP!

I have heard a lot of people having the problem with their RAM by setting the timing according to XMP instead of official specification.

According to a lot of peoples, the DDR3 RAMs might not work properly without setting the timing MANUALLY.

It is in your MB's manual.
