Clarification Request
Given little PC details.

Make it a warranty issue with its maker. If self made then look for errors in the part selection like a quad rail PSU and more.

Simply no. I never expect such a PC to be stable.

In reply to: replaced, specs

I see mixed memory (and it pains those that run memtest) and old parts. I find anything over 5 years to not be free from the occasional lockup or reboot. There are owners of such things that get very upset about it but at 5 years we know to not expect much.

Then I see a Seagate. Last month a weird (to some) lockup and long delays traced back to the HDD which passed all maker tests. The owner was not a believer so we showed cloning the drive to the new drive and the issue vanished. No, I don't know why Seagates are showing up so often causing really weird lockups and boots. Maybe this:

Nothing stands out except the old gear and parts.

It's got a lot of old parts and mixed memory.

In reply to: idk

Memtest has been known to pass and yet there be a memory issue. I'm not discounting it worked for years but it's an old machine. As the parts age, things like this happens and many owners are looking for which part to replace.

The story leads me to think of age and it's time to start with matched memory as a minor start and using only new parts for replacements rather than rummaging if stability is the goal.

GPU issues - either HDMI audio or CARD - go AMD

BRAND NEW BUILD w/ EVGA GTX980 Superclocked 4GB - constant freezing in most Blizzard games and STEAM. I updated to an AMD Radeon card and since then, never had any problems. Solved my issue with locking sound in Blizzard games and Steam. Not sure what the issue was, but for some reason the sound card hardware or drivers (HDMI AUDIO) on nVidia cards did not like my PC setup. Since going AMD Radeon, ZERO ISSUES on everything for 4 straight months.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
