  1. My computer crashes whenever I play games on it. this happens after a few minutes of playing or as soon as it loads up on others.
    I used to have nvidia 660 ti but this had same fault so I got a replacement and this still does the same thing
    Cpu: intel core i7 3770k oc to 4800
    MoBo: asus P8Z77-V LX Z77
    GPU: amd 7970
    Ram 32Gb corsair vengeance
    power supply xfx 750w modular
    OS: windows 8 pro 64 bit

    I believe that my computer is over spec so why does it crash??

    In the CPU frequency bios settings, disable C3/C6 stepping and any CPU throttling or speed control. This should stabilize the game play
