Well, any where from 4 hours to 2 minutes of use. The PSU was faulty, twice.

I have faced this problem before. It was 3/4 years back and my very old antec psu couldnt handle the power required by my OCed athlon 5000+ cpu and also gpu. The same thing happened to me while playing high end games (of that time) like Timeshift. The solution was ofcourse turning off the OC (thus lowering power requirements) and eventually changing the Psu. But as you guys were already discussing, this problem can also occur from a malfunctioning ram or even game (software) bugs. Diagnosing can be pretty tough. The best you can do is to try the memtest and also stressing cpu with p95-blend for more than 12 hours (some problems do come up very late, but DO NOT run furmark + p95 together for that long just test with prime95). Also do post the mem latency values you are currently using.

nothings oce'd as said before
and ram latencies are 9-9-9-24@1333mhz
and the freeze is not very frequent...it only happened thrice in 3 months..
ran memtest 86+ for 1 hour with no errors.........

hmmmmm you got another PSU you can try? dude you might be saying that your no overclocked but it still could be a bad PSU. you gpu and cpu and hungry little ****ers that want Watts of energy

RAM.
When I OC'd my RAM too much it would do that.

Stress test inter burn test and maximum ram usage (close all other programs).

If it's freezing on stock, then RMAing the RAM should fix it.

thnx tried running ibt 6 runs i know its very less but im leaving...
and in those 6 runs no freeze or anything....
and i cant think any scenario in which my pc will pull more than 450 watt at max...

i dont think my cpu and gpu r that hungry...compared to i7 9xx my i7 870 only has a tdp of 95 watt compared to 130 watt of i7 9xx....and gtx 460 also has tdp of 160 watt.....
still i will try replacing psu....
but currently i dont have any other quality psu lying around..i just have a non 80+ rated 600 watter lying around as backup.....

If you're not willing to stress test your computer, you will not be able to solve any stability problems.

Generally speaking, for memtest (bootable iso, not the one in windows) if the ram gets 1 pass then it's fine. For IBT, get gamebooster and let it closed all the service and programs that you don't need. Then run it at maximum for 3-5 hours. Make sure you have good cooling because IBT runs can get 10-15c higher than regular load.
