Hello I'm new here i build a new pc for myself but the problem is in games its crashing (not blue screen) if I go to task manager i get the message
display driver stops responding and has recovered

I post some screens for more info

Some people said to me it's the airflow that cause the freezing

I did few times I get every time error first core 1 then core 0. I guess something wrong with the cpu?

specs from my pc
HD 5770
Corsair Nova Series 64 gig
OCZ Gold Dual Channel Kit 4 gig DDR3 - 1333 MHz / PC3-10666 - CL9 - 1.65
Samsung SpinPoint 1 gig

What are your idle and load CPU temps? The specs on your RAM are pretty poor. Have you performed an overnight Memtest86+ test to check for faulty RAM? Freezing problems are usually caused by either faulty RAM/incorrect RAM settings in the BIOS or overheating.

Again isn't strange second time memory error? Isn't something with motherboard what damaged the memory something like that?

Have you run Memtest86+ on the new RAM kit? I haven't been impressed with OCZ RAM lately. It wouldn't surprise me if the new RAM is also faulty. You should also manually set the RAM speed, timings, and voltage to their rated values in the BIOS.

Go do stuff shortstuff recommended.

FYI next time don't replace bad OCZ RAM with OCZ RAM, they've been pretty fail with their RAM lately.

No I send both memory back to the shop the one with errors and the one with none errors because the warranty rules.
