    Hello, everyone please help me with a problem I have, and I could just use some input to whats going on...

    My computer Freezes on most of my new games that I play now... Trying to play Scrym, and it the random freezing is really getting on my nerves....

    So this is what I have tried on my computer to solve this issue

    1.) Reformatted, Still Freezes in my games
    2.) Water cooled my GPU, thought it was overheating, nope, STILL FREEZES
    3.) Thinking its my RAM now at this point, so im going to replace my ram with new/used ones, and give that a go....

    Any help would greatly be appreciated. THANKS!

    Scrym? I haven't heard of this, unless you mean Skyrim.

    I've just replied to another fellow having issues with this game and I'll repeat some of what I posted. Skyrim is new, simple. There will be multiple performance issues until they are addressed by the developers. Wait for the patches...

    If this issue is occurring on other games then we'll try to help you out.

    If the issue IS only with Skyrim, I wouldn't bother fiddling with your PC. :)

    You could well be right.. Only one way to find out. :)

    Download HWMonitor from here: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

    Install it & run...

    Take a screenshot of hwmonitor while the computer is on the desktop without any programs running. And while the computer is under stress, running a game. Then post them here.
