[homebuilt] lock up issues

ive been having problems for a couple months with games freezing on me. it seems to occur at randoms times with random games. within the first 5 min the game will freeze, sometimes i can alt tab or ctrl alt delete and restart the game and it will work perfectly once the game starts back up. other times it freezes completly and an annoying buzzing comes out of my speakers and i have to restart my comp. i keep good care of my pc dust it regularly and run defrag and clean up the registry. it dosnt seem to be a driver issue ive tried mulitiple drivers and im currently using the new beta drivers from nvidia. heres my system specs. ive also tried underclocking and over clocking and still get the same issues
