    Antec 300 Case
    Intel i3 530 stock speed
    4GB Corsair XMS PC3-12800
    Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H
    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
    Corsair CX400W PSU
    Samsung Spinpoint F3 320GB
    Samsung SH-D162D
    Windows 7 64-bit

    I have a rather annoying problem with this system. For a couple of weeks now it will randomly have a screen freeze with flashing pixels for a second or two and then just shutdown completely. It restarts with usual "Windows shutdown unexpectedly" screen.

    It currently doesn't have a GFX card in and is using the boards Intel HD Graphics but it did the same thing with an ATi 5770 and a Nvidia GTX460.

    Any ideas?

    Check all temps.
    Run memtest.
    Then swap the psu.
    If all those look good then maybe the motherboard.
