    W8 Random Crashes [w/o BSoD]


    Hey guys, I'm coming here with a REALLY FRUSTRATING PROBLEM. Recently randomly while @ my PC, it freezes all of a sudden. I've run MemTest86+, my PC isn't overclocked, and here's my stats:

    Windows 8 x64
    AMD Phenom x6 @ 2.88GHz
    Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti's in SLI
    Patriot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
    CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
    3 case fans, so heat isn't an issue [I've done those tests too].

    I've checked for event logs, checked .dmp files [no files there], etc.

    Thanks in advance!

    Please provide this information (even though you're not experiencing BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

    For starters:
    At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
    Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
    Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).
