After building my new computer and attempting to run a few a games I have ran into a freezing problem. The freezes seem to happen at random, i could be playing for 10 minutes or a few hours before it freezes to point where I have to reboot the whole system. CTRL + ALT + DEL has not effect. I thought this may be a heat issue so I upped my fan speed, didn't help the issue. Its either a problem with the drivers or the PSU, but i haven't a clue.

I have played a whole bunch of games to see if it was a single one causing a problem. I usually run them at the high/ultra settings. No matter if it was World of Tanks or Fallout, it freezes eventually.
