My PC randomly freezes when playing certain games

hi, i have recently built a new gaming PC but i have encountered a few problems whenever i play games such as Dayz, Minecraft or far cry 3 my computer freezes but for each game it freezes differently for example in Dayz my computer only freezes whenever i put the 3D resolution all the way up or just past half way also it freezes when i record with Fraps, and then there is Minecraft this game runs perfectly when Im not recording i get around 150 fps and it works fine but when i record i get around 60 to 80 fps and after about 2 to 5 minutes the PC will freeze and requires a full reboot, and finally there is far cry this game seems to operate the worst it freezes no matter what i do sometimes it does in the loading screens and then other times i can play about 5 to 20 minutes until it freezes.

I would really appreciate it if someone would suggest a solution to the problem.

  1. I'm not an expert but I'm 99% sure that It's your RAM.
    I have the same issue.
    If your RAM is not compatible with your motherboard you get freezes.
    Change your RAM voltage, timing ect to what I do not know.
    Last option update your bios. But It's the last option in my opinion.
