Today i bought a GIGABTYE B75-D3V, MSI AMD HD7850, Kingston Hyperblu-x 4GB and an Intel i5 3330
I kept the hard from the old rig and mounted on this one, reinstalled the windows and formated only the windows partition.
After installing the drivers I downloaded Skyrim and Dishonored.
I manage to play around 5 minutes max and the PC freezes, i get a weird sound, specific to the sound of BSoD and only thing i can do is restart the PC.
Also, the monitor gets electricity and signal from the video card.

What could it be? It's driving me insane cause the PC has almost 6 hours and it's already broken :pfff:

I'm leaning towards memory. I think that the MB has 1.5v memory slots. You have 1.65v memory. There may be some type of memory issue with this. 1155 officially only supports 1.5v.
Is you memory on this list.

My memory is not on that list. My model is KHX1600C9D3B1/4G.
If I am going to change it tommorow, what's the model that I'll use as a replacement?

I am running Windows 7 32 bit if it's relevant.
I'll run the stress tests now.

I would go into the bios and make sure the ram is at the correct voltage, not all bioses set the ram up correctly and I always go in and check/set it. Start with stock speed (1333 or 1600). Kingston keeps a nice informative sticker on their ram for you to reference.
