    Hey there, i've somewhat recently built myself a new gaming rig due to my old system being horribly outdated and unreliable and from day one of using the new computer i've had some problems with crashing.
    Basically, the computer crashes AT LEAST once per day and is seemingly undetectable as to when this happens, the only thing intensifying the crashing seems to be streaming videos online, ie. youtube, facebook, dailymotion videos etc.
    A friend of mine had compiled the list of parts that i would use to build the computer, and also did the majority of assembling (which i cannot notice any problems with by looking at the inside of the tower). This same friend, after hearing about constant crashing problems and unreliability as to when it would crash had suggested a problem with the system's memory, but after swapping out HDD's and even installing an SSD, the problem still seems to be as prevalent as ever, and, since i'm almost out of options, i've decided to turn to the wisdom of the internet, in the hopes of finally resolving this issue. I'm not quite sure as to what the problem(s) may be, but i'm still optimistic about the outcome, anyhow, here is a list of my system specs.

    Corsair 8GB RAM
    Western Digital 2TB internal HDD (1.6TB free space)
    OCZ agility 60GB SSD (Boot disc- 36GB free space)
    Win7 ultimate 32-bit OS
    Lite-on DVD drive
    Intel core i5 2500k processor
    Asus GeForce Gtx 560 DirectCU II Top 1024mb video card
    Antec 650w power supply
    Aerocool VX-E Pro case
    ASrock z77 PRO 4-M motherboard

    Thanks for your time,

    Do a memtest86+ on all your RAM sticks, if it passes then the problem is in another hardware, if it has errors, that might be causing the problem. Keep us up to date. Been hearing alot of this problem lately.

    Any 32 bit OS will never see more than 4Gb RAM.
    Were all the motherboard and device drivers installed IN THE CORRECT ORDER?

    corrected post.
