No big deal, John. You don't need to apologize. Your ideas are spot on usually. We all make mistakes at times. I know I sure have made more than my share. That's why this is a team function. We all check each other out.

Considering this is at least the third thread the OP has started on this subject it would probably be worth checking exactly what he's done following the advice of others.

And a clarification of his specs would help as well.

I wasn't aware of that. Good catch. draptak, this is the last thread on this subject. Continue to use this thread. Do not start another one. You are only hurting yourself as well as creating more work for the people trying to help.

Install the Asus utility or MSI Afterburner set an aggressive custom fan profile for the card so that the card does not get hot. See if that is any better. Let us know the results.
Already have the latest Drivers installed and they're all up to date. Before that I already did a clean installation of windows, and installed it again with the new GTX 770. The GPU also freezes if I try to run the 'System Rating' from the 'All Control Panel items'.
However I used the Asus tweak utility to turn the fan up but unfortunately I'm still getting the same problem.

We really can't help you unless your hardware specs are up to date. That CPU will run that Graphics card. The problem is not the CPU, it is either drivers, board, PSU or the card itself.
