Most cases like this are caused with out of date drivers for the audio or video card.

Double check cpu temps with speed fan; if they are high, I wouldn't use the standard Intel heatsink/fan, get something cooler. | Report abuse Feldii November 23, 2011 4:31:03 PM Also make sure that your motherboard's BIOS is up to date. That should fix any known CPU or chipset issues. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Intel i7 freeze> Related ressources: ForumIntel i7 3770k freezing issues ForumCore i7 2600k + Intel DP67BG Mobo.
