I built a computer with a gtx 590, an i7 2600k, g-skill ripjaws 8gb at 1600mhz, a p8p67 deluxe and a coolermaster silent pro 850w psu.
My computer keeps freezing and crashing, this does not happen during games, but also during web browsing.
I ran prime 95, I freeze after about 2 minutes on blend and on the first option.
The temperatures I'm hitting with prime 95 don't really exceed 50 degrees, so I doubt cooling is a problem, because I'm using an NH-D14 and a cooler master haf x.
Here is the log with who crashed:

Bug check description: This bug check indicates that a fatal hardware error has occurred. This bug check uses the error data that is provided by the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA).
This is likely to be caused by a hardware problem problem. This problem might be caused by a thermal issue.
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.
I am on windows 7 64 bit, memtest also freezes my computer as well.
What could be the problem? I doubt that it is the graphics card because the computer freezes with 2 different graphics card.
I would start by finding out the exact model number of your g-skill ripjaws RAM, see what voltage it is manufactured for and then seeing what your BIOS voltage for it is set at... you may want to bump it up a small amount. ( are you using 2 or four RAM slots?)
