The parts list is great, but you need to be clearer about your issue.

Literally every 20-30 minutes? It never crashes right after you boot up?

What tests have you done? What diagnostic tools are you using?

What are CPU Core temps ?

Has it passed overnight runs of memtest+ and Prime95 ?

Any messages in event viewer ?

What OS are you running? You have a balanced selection of components. Are your temps. ok? What exactly is happening when you say crashes? Is it going bsd, freeze up or restart/shutdown? Have you installed any new software recently? Have you upgraded the bios, drivers or anything else? You may have a software conflict. Please provide more details.

1. Win7 ultimate
2.19-23 C load normaly when just running fire fox,sometimes fluxes to 30 something randomly

3.no blue screen,

Yet when my computer crashes it simply shuts off,yet most of the time my DVD drive makes a "reving" sound,then after a few short moments my computer just randomly shuts off.....
I still have the crashing problem when i disconnect the DVD drive from computer.

4.no I have not updated BIOS,not sure about drivers though

5.I over clocked over 4.0 ghz on my i5 via software for short amounts of time,just to see if i could...and take screens...i remembered to stay under the voltage limit....

Put the CPU in stock speed and see if the problem persists
