Computer keeps freezing when playing games such as bf3
I'm an amateur and just finished building my new computer. However the computer keeps freezing when i play bf3 or do complicated tasks, when i pressed ctr+alt+delete, it says "preparing system options" for a while and shuts down. Even if i don't use the computer, it will restart by itself and freeze on the boot screen.
Any help would be appreciated. THX

A freezing computer like this is nearly always caused by faulty memory, download memtest86 4.0a to test. Run it for at least 3 (preferably more) passes before pronouncing the memory as being good.
Sounds like memory to me. Run memtest.
You really shouldn't be running 1.65v memory with a 2700K, if you do, you should set it to 1.5v/1333mhz
