Hello,
I recently built myself a new gaming rig. I have so far been trying to play world fo warcraft on ultra and high setting but get blue screens and random reboots after a time.

Here are the specs on the system.
MOBO: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3 AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

CPU: AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4100WMGUSBX

RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B

Video Card: XFX Double D HD-679X-ZDFC Radeon HD 6790 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

PSU: CORSAIR Gaming Series GS800 800W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

Case: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

The few blue screens I have seen were. IRWL not less or equal. Unexpected Clock and video realted one but cant recall exactly what it said.

There have been no blue screens for a while but I have been random booting.

Which OS? Clean install? Have you checked your temperatures (GPU, CPU)?

I am going to assume you are on a Windows platform. Try safemode with networking and see if the problem persists. IRQL not less than or equal is usually related to a graphics driver problem so if this seems to be the issue uninstall it in safemode and then reinstall it in normal mode. Run a memory test and hard drive test as well. Have any of the components been overclocked or overvolted?
