Default Rebuilding a Lemon! around a I7 930. Will all this work together?

Well, to make a long story short, I purchased a custom computer form cyberpower pc, the thing is super fast, but blue screens about every 3hrs. nomatter what!

When I watch DVD/play games/hulu, it blue screens every10-30min.

I called cyberpower over and over, left messages, they just don't pick up.

So I am going to be rebuilding my system.

So far this is what I am going to save from my last comp

DVD RW/CDRW x2
GTX 280 graphic card
750watt power source
Unicorn Case (nohomo, it was on sale/looks nice)
all in one media drive




Here is the stuff I am looking to buy, will all this be compatible??

Seagate Constellation ES ST31000524NS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
CORSAIR XMS3 12GB (6 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model HX3X12G1333C9

When the computer BSOD what is the Error Code and Message? Maybe we can fix, or help you fix what Cyberpower can't.

Also monitor your temps with hwmonitor from CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

if it's under warranty, keep pestering them about replacing it.

I know, looks like he just ran HWmonitor right after he exited the game.

Temperatures drop FAST mate,
you should start HWmonitor BEFORE you started playing games, to check idle, and max whilst gaming.


also, TMPIN2 shows 86C that shows a red flag

I also have not idea about/what tmpin2 is, I will have to look into it.

I've called for weeks, emailed for months.

When I call to place a order they pick up, but then I ask for assistance, and they say "please hold", then I hold for 1hr or so, then hang up, and recall.

They will not get back to me, the computer came with a 3 year.

but it is useless.

From what I've read, they basicly don't do ****.
