ok so i built a pc a year ago, core i5 2500k, aftermarket cooler, asus p8p67-m pro board, corsair hx 850, 12 gb ram, ssd and a hdd, 2x gtx 660 ti. most times when im playing a game, usually in 1080p, my pc freezes and restarts, freezes mid game. it did it when i had 460's, then i got 660's, and same thing, so i upgraded from 4 gb ram to 12 to see if that fixed it and nothing. then i upgraded from a corsair 600 to a 850. and still does it, im ready to take a hammer to this thing. ive monitored temps and gfx and cpu stay in mid 60's sometimes high 60's. so im good there. what else could this be?

did you overclock your cpu?
if you did,try prime 95 to check stability
