    Did you check to see if Windows installed NVIDIA's drivers onto your system? There is a difference between Windows 8's stock video driver for NVIDIA cards and drivers from NVIDIA. They seem to be come and screw things up.

    Well, it seems like a hardware problem of some sort.

    Make sure it's not overheating. Are you overclocking at all? If so, don't. Try re-seating the memory (take it out and put it back in). Check all your connections. If you can get a UPS, even if you just borrow it for a bit, run it on a UPS.

    Are there any specific programs that this tends to happen on?

    I'd go and uninstall it, restart, and let Windows use its default driver. Or try rolling back the driver.

    And oh shoot, this is correct, we haven't mentioned or discussed hardware overheating issues! That's something to make sure about, check the CPU heatsink for dust build up and all around the case.

    Liquid cooling? You don't know? That's usually something an enthusiast would do, and they would know how it works quite well.

    Typically, liquid cooling is used when overclocking. So it sounds like your system is configured to run beyond it's normal specifications.

    Thats a nice system what i see doing a Google search for the Model. I would read through the Event viewer and look for issues and if you have it to sleep or hibernate I would set it to stay on all the time just to see if that solves the issues, plus if it is water cooled like it shows in the specs make sure it is not overheating like others have suggested. When it freezes what do you have to do to get it to restart. Does Ctrl-Alt-Delete get you anywhere. When you go to surf the web is the system asleep or hibernating beforehand and then you wake it up surf and it freezes up. I would unplug anything that is USB plugged in you are not using at the time a client of mine had a portable sd card reader plugged in one time and it was giving his system a problem.
