    i think i may have fixed it finally. i've played 3 different games at ultra settings, rendered a 4k video and not a single bsod or system freeze.

    I did some tweaking with the registry and added some values in the graphic drivers registry key and it was all good until this morning when I played assassin's creed 4 and the system did stuttering and then apparently froze again. I did All the burn in tests and ran memtest and I aced it all so I don't think I should replace my unit as my hardware appears to be fine. What do u gents think?

    to give u a better understanding what happens, i have recorded a video. please check and suggest me fixes for it.

    UPDATE: my cpu temp reaches upto 94 according to latest burnintest
