It's odd that you have crashes in games but not in stress testing, though.

I think I really found the issue now, still need to do few more test to confirm.

System was Prime, Linx, OCCT stable at 4.0, 3.8, 3.6, and stock. (those are CPU, Memory street apps)

but at all those settings I still kept getting lock ups while doing these tasks.
1) playing games
2) watching videos, movies
3) while lisening to music

All these lock-up issues involved sound, computer usually locked up few minutes when doing anything above.

Today I removed the X-Fi, and turned on the onboard sound, and so far 3+ hours and no lock-up. Still at stock setting, soon will jump to 3.8 and to more test.

It seems that after about 3 years my X-Fi kicked the bucket.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
