Help! Computer keeps on freezing when playing games.

I have recently built a computer specifically to play games. I have had this for a couple monthes now and ever since I have gotten it, it has been freezing regularly. It would usually freeze when I have multiple things open at once, or when I'm playing games. This computer has been pretty good, but it is just the freeze that has been frustrating.

Motherboard: Intel® Desktop Board DX79TO
Memory: Kingston HyperX 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K4/16GX
Graphic Card: ASUS GTX 560 DirectCU II OC
CPU: Intel Core i7-3820 LGA2011
CPU Cooler: Hyper 212 EVO
Power Supply: Antec TruePower New 650W
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

  1. Do you have the latest SSD firmware installed?
  2. And have you run memtest on your ram
  3. if its freezing up and causing a reebot, instead of just freezing momentarily, i would also check temperatures (if you havent already) to make sure that isnt the cause. Also note if you have/have not overclocked.
  4. Test the RAM 1 stick at a time with MemTest86+ (with the +) Let it get through at least 6 or 7 passes each.
