Hey so i have a brand new home built desktop pc.
Specs:
Win7 64bit
ASUS|MAXIMUS IV EXTREME-Z Z68 R
CORSAIR 750W PSU
16 Gig Ram
EVGA GTX580
INTEL CORE I7 2600K 3.4G
500G HD

So my problem is when i play CSS, TF2 and now Bf3 my game will work for about 5-10 mins then will freeze up for about 5-10 mins. At that time im kicked out of servers. So basically my new gaming rig, is an overpriced web browing machine.
While on youtube streaming i had something happen aswell, i was listening to music and the comp froze and the sound was slow motion sounding and couldnt close the window or ctrl alt del. For about 5-10mins.
Any ideas on whats wrong? It worked fine when it was built (less than a month ago).
Does this sound like a hardware problem/malfunction?
I did run the OC scanner stress test and nothing seemed to be a problem.
