Hello everyone,
I've been having nothing but problems for the past 2 months. Here's the story:
specs 1 :
Asus crosshair III Formula
AMD Phenom II 955 BE
XFX HD 4890
6GB corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333
Corsair HX750W
One day I decide to sell my HD4890 and get myself a GTX295 on Ebay . by the time I was waiting for my GTX295 to arrive my PSU dies ( was less than 1 month old) .

specs 2 :
Asus crosshair III Formula
AMD Phenom II 955 BE
Colorful GTX 295
6GB corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333
Cougar 700CM 700W
2 weeks later my GTX dies. Great and I had no guarantee since I bought it over Ebay. And my PSU gives out like 2 days later.

specs 3 :
Asus crosshair III Formula
AMD Phenom II 955 BE
XFX HD 5770
6GB corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333
Be Quiet pure power 530W
now it's my mobo's turn. It stopped beeping even when there are no RAM inside! And I changed my PSU again.

specs 4:
Gigabyte 79XTA-UD4
AMD Phenom II 955 BE
XFX HD 5770
6GB corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333
Corsair TX650W
I forgot to mention that using Specs 4 and 5 My PC was very unstable. Random crashes , sound lag ...
Yesterday I got a replacement for my Corsair HX750W and that's what I'm currently runnig.

Specs 5 :
Gigabyte 79XTA-UD4
AMD Phenom II 955 BE
XFX HD 5770
6GB corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333
Corsair HX750W
PC still very unstable crashes randomly. I don't always get bsod but i got one the other day twice actually and it says STOP : 0x00000050 . According to the Microsoft site it's a hardware problem mostly RAM . I tested my modules using memtest 86+ and no errors! I ran prime 95 overnight just to wake up and see that my pc crashed. Checking results.txt it shows that ran the test for at least 3 hrs and a half with no errors.I'm running out of ideas here. I hope someone can help me!
thanks in advance

PS: The reason why I think it's a hardware problem is because I had the exact same problem with a previous system and solved it by getting a new PSU. Plus reinstalling win7 didnt solve the problem!

I'd measure the voltage in your wall and make sure it's in between 114 and 128 volts, 120V is the ideal.

Also, are you sure your PC isn't overheating drastically?

I've already done that I live in Europe so for me it's 220V.
Yupp I'm sure it isn't overheating. I have an Antec 900 case and all components are at arround 30°C idle

ran driver verifier and got a bsod if someone can help me with the dump file that would be great.

btw. I'm suspecting the mobo . I noticed the voltages are fluctuating.

That would be the problem of the PSU.
