I recently built a gaming rig and when I play BF3 or Diablo 3 for a half a hour or so my computer freezes and I'm forced to crash it. I'm not overclocking anything. My graphics card is a GTX 670 and the temp is around 70 degrees Celsius. My driver is also updated.

Thanks

Can you list out the specs? I would like to know the Power Supply Unit (brand, model number and how much watts it produces)

Also, how long have you had this issue? ever since you built your gaming rig?

This is my first computer rig so I probably missed something when setting up my computer.

Make sure you check all the power cords are properly in place. Make sure nothing is loose. Also, make sure your graphics card has the proper 6 pin power cord (look to see if it has 6 pins inside), also make sure your video card is properly seated.

Just I was turning off my computer so I could check the power cords I have over 100 updates for windows :??: 
Could this be the problem for the freezing as well? I will check the power cords as soon as my computer shuts off.

I appreciate your help so far!

No problem. You should update your windows and check the cords.

It could be the RAM; test it with only one RAM module and then the other to see if that's your problem.

is it possible that the reason could be my CPU overheating? I haven't checked the temp

In regards to temp, that is also a possibility. Do you have any blocked fans? Do you have sufficient airflow in your case? Is it dusty inside?

Also, you may want to check your RAM, try one stick at a time and see if any problems occur with either RAM stick.
