I built my first build yesterday and had Windows 7 64 Bit (OEM) installed and everything. Once I started to install updates, it would freeze, also making a loud noise on my speakers if it was on. It did it again when I was trying to install some games. Today I switched the RAM slots and it worked for awhile, then it did it again when I ran one of my games. (ingame)
My specs are
AMD Phenom ii X4 965 BE 3.4 GHz
ASUS M4A79XTD EVO motherboard
AMD Radeon HD 6700 series
2x2GB G Skill Ripjaw DDR3 1600 RAM
550w Antec PS
I checked my CPU to make sure it wasn't overheating, 43 degrees Celsius.
