Hi, I got a gaming computer that I have built exactly one year ago, and having troubles where my computer freezes and have to be manually restarted. the freezing happens mostly during games but it also happens while i surf the web.
about few weeks ago i upgraded from XP to 7 and the problem is occurring more than before (sometimes 3, 4 times in 6 hours). Totally sucks when i am playing WoW
Currently I am thinking overheating of my graphics cards might be the problem ( which felt hot after freeze up), since everything else feels pretty cool to touch besides my sound card which is jammed up between my graphics cards.
Any hints on how to pinpoint the exact cause of freezing? Or has anyone had the same kind problem that can help me fix my machine.
Here is my specs:
Corsair HX 1000W power supply (changed after the first one failed)
XFX nForce 790i Ultra
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 2.66Ghz 6MB 1333FSB
(with Thermaltake liquid cooling kit for CPU)
4GB of Corsair DDR3 1600MHz RAM
500GB + 750GB Seagate 7200/32Mb hard drives no RAID
2x XFX GeForce 9800GTX+ SLI config
Creative Soundblaster Xsomething sound card
