Hello,
I just built a new computer with the following specs:

Intel Core i7 3930k
Asus P9X79 Pro Motherbord
GTX 680 Graphics
16GB Ram
Winows 7 Ultimate
1 x 2TB Seagate Barracuda Drive
1 x 3TB Seagate Barracuda Drive
1000W Modular Power Supply (CoolerMaster)
HAF X Case
LG Blu Ray Writer
Recon 3D Soundcard

I updaed the motherboard using USB Bios Flash and updated all Windows Updates to the latest version. All other drivers are updated also, but it keeps crashing.

Normally it happens after a while, and even whilst using basic programs lyk Photoshop CS6.. Any help please!

Some questions for you:
* Is the system overclocked?
* Is the Power Supply new?
* Did you try to remove all but ONE stick of RAM and restart?
* What kind of memory is it?
* Did you try removing the sound card?
