I've been experiencing complete system freezes lately on my computer. Here is my build for the parts list. The screen freezes and the sound starts playing at an incredibly slow rate. It will usually stay on this frozen screen and never prints an error message. Every now and then it will resume from the freeze like nothing happened. It mainly happens while watching Youtube videos or playing League of Legends. Doesn't seem to be any fixed amount of time before a crash.
I have tried reinstalling Windows, taken out the graphics card and just use intel integrated graphics and no overclock and it still happens. Also tried a different solid state drive (toshiba). If anyone has any help to offer or similar experience it would be greatly appreciated. I think it may be the processor because I was fairly careless when overclocking it since it was a $50 chip. Any thoughts?
It turned out to be my WiFi card. I pulled it out of a Dell computer and I guess it was specific to that motherboard. I couldn't install the drivers off the dell website, but I looked up the controller and was able to install some generic drivers that seemed to work but would actually cause freezing whenever I would do anything that involved a constant network connection.
