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.
My specs: SSD: Kingston SSDNow V+100 128GB 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 Tower: Antec Twelve Hundred
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.
Test the RAM 1 stick at a time with MemTest86+ (with the +) Let it get through at least 6 or 7 passes each.
