    First I would suggest that you clock everything back to the standard setting, and see if that helps.

    If not, then download and run Memtest 86+ from

    Let it run for at least seven passes.

    Also right click my computer, then properties, then the advanced tab. Under startup and recovery click settings, and uncheck the box that says automatically restart.Click ok, then apply and ok, and reboot your system.

    Now instead of your system rebooting when there`s an error. You should receive an error message telling you what caused the crash. Pay particular attention to any drivers identified in the stop message.

    Regards Howard :)

    Thanks for your reply The memory test was ok That is actually the first thing I ran forgot to say so .. Seems I got the problem fixed with a reinstall of motherboard drivers And removal of heatsink and fan and did some cleaning and applied a fresh coat of antec silver .. All seems fine now.
