There are many reasons not limited to:
- bad driver installation or faulty driver (try clean installing the latest driver)
- faulty memory
- overclocking memory, GPU or CPU too much
- Just wrong timing in the BIOS for CPU, chipset or memory
something to worry about and should not happen.
-Drivers were all installed cleanly and are up-to-date.
-Not sure about memory... or how to check.
-No overclocking, GPU is set to max memory in bios
-Timing... possibly. My board technically only supports 1333 memory, but I installed 1600. I didn't make any bios changes (most settings are defaulted to auto) and it just "worked"
-I don't think overheating is an issue
I opened the event viewer and I had two errors. I have no clue what the second error might be. The first is most likely the culprit since I was in media center and I was using the HDHomerun:
