  1. had a year old system worked like a charm,i decided to upgrade some bits here and there,so i bought a ati 1900xt.when i recived it i found out that a pci-e slot was needed so i ordered a new mortheboard ,installed that found i needed a pci-e power supply got one installed it.the thing went fine in windows xp and farcry but the thing freezes within 2-10 mins of all other gamesand very rarely in i read through every related forum for the past month to no avail.
    heres a list of things ive done.
    2 pci-e compatable psu still happens[brand new good ones ,ran hairdryer on cold over everybit.]
    have fitted 3 new fans have 7 in total,3 in 3 out 1 on psu
    updated all drivers
    bought a xfi music soundcard
    getting another new mobo 2 days.

    the temps are cpu 25 idle 40 max

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Whatever I say it`s only going be a guess.

    Usually freezing is either caused by overheating/psu/videocard, but I guess it could be your mobo.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions. See if it helps any.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
