Hello,

After installing GPU (GTX 680) on motherboard, I started experiencing PC freezes when gaming, usually when I die and a level or a game restarts. It also once happened when I exited a game and started browsing the internet.

Memtest OK, GPU is brand new and not faulty (checked with another PC),
tried: reinstalling Windows, installing newest GPU driver, installing old and stable one, updating BIOS, lowering GPU core and mem clock by 200MHz.
max. temps: CPU 62c, GPU 68C.

motherboard: asus 85bm-g
16GB ram
I5 4440
PSU: OCZ600SXS2


Any ideas?

THANK YOU :)
