First of all make sure you have updated your drivers to the latest ones. Second of all make sure your cpu/gpu aren't overheating.

could try a BIOS update for that mobo it is very new and high end could have a few problems. Also update all drivers possible mobo and graphics.

depends on your soundcard but things like X-fi and audigy have a few problems with games so old drivers could be the problem so update.
