Windows 7: Windows 7 64bit freezes randomly while playing games

Windows 7 64bit freezes randomly while playing games

Once while playing for an hour and another time for 3 hours the screen just randomly freezes, makes a quiet buzzing-like sound and requires me to hard-reset the computer.

Edit: Now while playing for 2 minutes it happened, the temps are fine.
Edit2: Now instantly when loading into a game of League of Legends
Edit3: If anyone bothers they can read my other thread with lots of replies, since then I have temporarily removed my dGPU and installed the ASUS Xonar DGX sound card. (Freezing occured before this).

Hey everyone. I built this computer about a month ago and was quite excited to be running a new configuration and my first 64-bit OS. The excitement didn't last very long, however, as I began experiencing some very strange freezes while playing World of Warcraft. For the next few weeks, I tried...
