I recently built a PC for myself a few weeks ago.
The specs will be pasted below after the description of my problem.
While gaming, surfing the web, or running AutoCAD, my PC just freezes up.
It has happened 5-6 times and I am not sure what is going on.
I did some research and I was advised to go to ASUS's QVL for my Motherboard and check the latency and recommended speed.
I followed the advised instructions but my PC froze again while playing a game.
I then tried running virus scans to see if this was the issue but I detected nothing.
I ran Windows Update, but the problem still occurred.
The most significant recent change I did was upgrade my video card's drivers to NVIDIA's 296 driver.
Could it be the voltage of my DDR3 Memory?
It is rated at 1.5V.
Below are the specs for my machine.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
