Windows 7 Ultimate x64

It's been a while,

I ran AIDA64 for like 10 hours yesterday before I had to stop it because I needed to use my rig so badly, being a dumb idiot like I am I accidentally deleted the logfile that contains the graph that could shed light on what might be wrong with my PC.

Nonetheless the graph looked sort of normal to me but my PC froze again like 3-5 times after I stopped the test but no BSODs, tried looking for the dump file at BlueScreenview but it didn't show me anything. I'll try to run AIDA64 again and will post it here as we all celebrate a wonderful Christmas season.

My guess is that you are using the 331.65 WHQL driver?
If so, please follow this to install the stable 314.22 WHQL driver;
