Default Re: Computer Randomly Restarting

Ya, I will plug the 570 in, once and if my comp crashes.. Now, the last time it crashed (with just the 680 in).. I had a bunch of firefox tabs open, I'd say approx 10-13 tabs open.. Along with a PDF (windows 8 version) and a few other things. I wonder, could this be happening because Windows 8 is using up so much ram that, 8GB is just not enough and it's restarting on me because of it??

I heard that Windows 8 just gobbles up your ram..

BUMP: SOLUTION

Alright so after about 3 weeks of swapping out different things here and there, it finally came down to it being my MOBO.. I swapped that out and it works perfectly now. Though I must warn you, this swap of hardware sucked, just because the amount of time you need to put in to unplug everything and plug everything back in. And I also had to repair windows because it was a new chipset.

Anyways thankyou for all the help people gave me but the final solution was the MOBO. If that was not the problem it was the CPU next swap out.
