    If it doesn't freeze again, I'll mark the thread as solved.
    great, hope it works!

    Hello,
    I am not trying to hijack this thread but I have a very similar situation and I though sharing it might help us both.
    I have the ASUS HD7790-DC2OC-1GD5 and even the same CPU. Only in my case this is a very new build and the problems started about a week after I finished it and installed Win 8.1. I wouldn't get BSOD or crash dumps either until I enabled driver verifier. The cause seems to be a deadlock in the graphic driver.
    See this post for a better explanation(thats the thread with my problem):
    New PC suddenly freezes with no warning - Windows+8 - Windows 8

    I have tried different drivers now, including the ones from ASUS website but nothing worked so far.
    Please let me know if you find a solution!

    Nah dude. No way.

    You can see the BSOD subforum here if you would like help with that so we can fix it all up for ya.

    But, welcome.

    On a side note - I've read what you said about clocks. I pin mine at 1200 MHz when I game. The card is a freakin' beast when considering its price point.

    Look at Pixel and Texture fill rates. That's boss for the price I paid. heh

    xDegree you can also install the ASUS GPU Tweak utility as an option ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download HD7790-DC2OC-2GD5 but choose windows 8 64-bit. Hope everything works great for you from now on

    ......... -.- ........... That bl.... PC froze again -.-
    I really dont get it. The PC works fine for a while, no matter what I do. For instance I'm workin' in Photoshop, copy things and listen to music via Spotify - at the same time, no problem. And then in another moment - just spotify open, not mean any harm and booom - it crashes. This is becoming a pain in the neck by now.
    Do you guys happen to have another idea where the problem could come from?

    TIA xDegree

    Sorry to hear that! Check for BIOS updates for your motherboard. I certain BIOS update could solve your problem.

    No way its the same problem?
    I dont know, believe me I have tried a lot already. I am not saying it is the same, but so far looks identical to mine and I am only saying it could be.
    Also, not sure what you mean about the clocks... I never touched them.

    Try enabling manual memory dump as explained here:
    Support | How to get a Windows memory dump
    Enable driver verifier:
    Driver Verifier - BSOD related - Windows 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista - Sysnative Forums

    These will not solve the problem but they might IDENTIFY it. Meaning you might get some error or some other information from the dumps instead of just the computer freezing and not knowing what causing it. This might also confirm whether its similar to my situation or not.
