Custom computer keeps freezing

  1. alright here is my problem, two months ago I bought all the new hardware to build a custom computer from newegg.com. These parts consist of Intel BOXDH67CLB3 LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard,CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply,Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600K,G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL7D-8GBXH,Western Digital RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive, and ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM. It is running windows 7

    When I put everything together with a computer friend everything worked and turned on fine. Then after about a week it started freezing. When it freezes everything freezes completely. the only way to restart the system is to hold the power button. After reading forums I learned that I needed to try and put the memory sticks in the a slots and not the b slots. I tried this and still had the same issue. I have downloaded memtest and mounted it onto a cd. When booting from the cd it goes to memtest first screen and ask what version to use 1 or 2 after trying it over and over everytime i hit the number for one of the two version it goes to some screen real quick and then goes back to the computer start up screen. Every once in awhile when it freezes a blue screen comes up. i have a picture of that blue screen it is in a attached file with this message. if you cant see it i would me happy to email it to you.

    Any ideas? This issue is extremely annoying for a new computer.

    I would appreciate the help

    Thanks,

    Did you properly apply thermal paste to the CPU?
