I recently built a new system and am having complete lock up issues -total freeze up, no warning, stuters, slowness just an instant freeze up. It sometimes happens within a few minutes sometimes in an hour sometimes not at all for several hours. I received the following error message once only:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart your computer, if this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
If problem continues, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable bios memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode... etc.

I have been to all manufacturers sites to look/get any driver updates.
I ran Nvedia monitor and enabled log tracing - there wasn't any over heating taking place.
