    My computer keeps crashing and i dont know whats wrong with it i built it at the beginning of last year and its has never had this problem before but all of a sudden about 5 days ago it started having issues and crashing when i tried to play games it would be random as to when it would crash. and its not overheating i cant tell because my pc is barely warm and idk. When it crashes the screen just freezes and i cant do anything to fix it nothing works.

    my specs:
    fx-9590 amd processor
    gigaybyte motherboard
    8gb ddr3-1866 ram

    for some reason the bios doesnt let me run my ram at 1866 it make me run it at 1600 other wise it doesnt boot up.

    What games are you playing? What's the make/model of your mobo? What type of CPU cooler do you have installed.

    That 9590 runs hot to start with. At 220 watts, you need a very good CPU cooler.
