Default maybe defective cpu?

hi,
i had also freezes in the past.

it turned out to be a defective cpu!

i couldnt believe it, coz it didn't crash all the time, just with 3d-games.

i inserted new cpu, an all problems went away.

try to run the prime95 program (the torture-test and the benchmark) (http://www.mersenne.org).

if it fails, crashes or is reporting a defective hardware, then it is most likely you cpu or ram or mainboard.

in my case it was the cpu.
i hope this helps.
