OK...I'm my rig just keeps randomly freezing..

MOBO: Gigabyte P35 DS3R rev.1
CPU; C2Q q9300 @ 3.33ghz (rock stable...have run prime95 overnight)
Mem: Geil Evo one 4x2GB @ 890mhz CL5
GPU; MSI NX8800GTX 768mb @ 1600x1200
PSU; Rosewell RT550 turbo series 550w (which I think could be causing the problems)
OS: Win 7 x64 Ultimate
HD: WD raptor(system), WD caviar SE 320GB(slave disk)

the problem:
I keep experiencing random freeze ups(then I have to turn it off via the pwr button)
It will freeze just running HW monitor, or just when I'm surfing the net , on youtube,or photoshop etc. with nothing running in the background...even on the login page once..

I've never exprerienced this problem before..(as I have run this set up before on with the Kingwin lazer gold 1000w) and I had none of these problems....

has anyone experienced this problem?

any input will be appreciated

The easiest check (and the first you should do) is set it back to stock clocks to see if the problem continues.

Run memtest on your ram. Run HDD tests on each drive in your system. Run a GPU stability program like OCCT. If you do not have a PSU tester to test your PSU see if a friend will loan you a PSU for testing purposes and as Waco said, set your OC's to stock and see if the problem continues but if it does not the problem could still be PSU related.

I brought it down to 3.2ghz instead of back to stock...and it's been running a treat....and atari have just released the TDU2 patch 2...so no more crashes from that...:D
