New PC randomly freezes - Event 6008

I had some help building this PC about 2 months ago and it has been freezing for what feels like complete random since the beginning of it all. It doesn't feel like anything in particular that causes this to happen; the PC will just completely hang unable to move the mouse or do anything and the sound makes a constant buzzing noise coming from the speakers. It's happened while I was playing a game (borderlands 2), watching youtube and even just sitting at my desktop. I've already reformatted my PC and it hasn't changed anything. I've tried running MemTest because I thought the RAM might be the problem but nothing showed. It also froze while using the onboard graphics that comes with the motherboard when I didn't have my graphics card.


My PC specs are:

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-M LGA 1155 Intel Z77
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600
Hard Drive: WD Caviar Green 1TB WD10EARX
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 680 2GB
Power Supply: Rosewill Xtreme Series RX750-S-B 750W


I also checked Event Viewer and every time it freezes it comes up with an error called "Event ID 6008".

Hoping to figure out what the problem is because I can't tell what it is at this point.

Hello zslashz :hello: 

My first suspect would be RAM with a freeze as you suggested, I've had memtest pass and still have something wrong with the sticks, did you try changing them out one at a time in different slots, still could be a bad stick.

Next I would see what your CPU temps are running, do you have a program installed to monitor your temps, if not try CoreTemp, see what your temperatures are running, could be a simple issue of the heatsink not seated properly.

Next is this thing OC'd? I had a similar problem with a build that the OC was just a minute CPU voltage off like .03 volts. So if there is an OC try turning it back to stock and see if it freezes.

Next it could be a driver, try booting to safe mode see if it freezes running in safe mode.

Last but not least and one of the most common problems, the PSU, do you have a different one you could try?



Just my 2 cents do with it what you will. :sol:

Thanks for the reply!

My CPU idle temp is around 30-32c. While under load it is about 55-60c.
I haven't overclocked it at all; it's running at stock settings.

Nope, only have this PSU. I've been considering switching around the RAM because I still believe it might have something to do with the freezing. I'll try these things out later tonight and see how that goes.

-Check also the motherboard chipset temps.
-Try booting the computer with only one memory stick.
-Check if your BIOS is correctly configured.

The best thing you can do is trying to boot in safe mode, so you may know if you're having a software or a hardware problem.
