Brand new build constantly freezing

  1. Just built a new computer. Asus Rampage Extreme III mobo, PNY Geforce 470, 6gb OCZ ram, 800w PSU, Intel i7-930. Windows 7 pro 32

    It is constantly freezing during games and during video playback, like netflix or youtube. Some times it will freeze right away, sometimes after hours of play. On a bad day it just makes doing anything impossible. I get two types of freezes. One, the audio continues to go, the screen is just frozen, forcing me to reset. Other is it will freeze in game, with no audio, forcing a reset, and I get a BCCode 116 error. I reinstalled windows and all drivers last night, dont get a BCCode anymore on reset, but it continues to freeze just the same. I have checked temps and power and everything seems to be good. All the drivers are the latest. I haven't loaded the newer bios for my mobo yet, but last time I did that before the windows reinstall, it didnt help anyways. All I can think of is some crazy driver issue that I just cant tell, or maybe something physically wrong with the video card?

    Help needed!

    STOP error 0x116 can mean that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed. STOP code 0x00000116 may also display "VIDEO_TDR_ERROR" on the same STOP message.

    First, uninstall your installed nVidia drivers, reboot, and run Driver Sweeper (you can find it in TS download section) to clean any remaining nVidia driver files.

    Download latest WHQL driver from nVidia's site, and install it, reboot the system, and see whether it help resolve the issue.

    If it doesn't, please download OCCT, and thoroughly stress test your graphic card including vRAM, and come back with your results.
