    Dear smakkage,

    We didn't see the symptom on our side, please kindly refer to below suggestions for testing.
    1. Load BIOS default settings to try.
    2. Check the CPU heatsink. (Make sure it is well installed)
    3. Make sure the thermal grease is well spread on the CPU.
    4. Open one side of your chassis first for test.
    5. Install your memory to other memory slots to try.
    6. Please install the latest VGA driver from below link to try.
    Link: AMD Graphics Drivers & Software
    7. Leave only necessary device of your computer for testing. (CPU, a stick memory, add-on VGA card and 1HDD )
    8. If possible, please change another CPU or memory.

    Thank you!

    Have a nice day

    We already tryed all this, tried with another vga card, another hdd and tripple channel ram.
    We have monitored all the temps on every component, everything is normal, no error code, nothing.
    Btw. we have tryed with a Asus GTX 560 Ti (OC 900MHz, DirectII) and it had runned without crashing. Then we tryede another ATI Radeon 6870 and it runned in 6 hours before it startet to freeze, after the first freeze, the freezes comes faster and faster. Now it freezes every 2 hour. "These cards have been testet in another pc. and they both work perfectly."
    All the freezes comes randomly, sitting normaly in google chrome and then it freezes. We have tryed to do nothing, it still freezes.

    Try bumping the DRAM voltage up and the VTT voltage. Do it in increments. Try not to exceed 1.25 on the VTT.
    I read somewhere that the Gskill RAM needs to be bumped to 1.65 for stability at those speeds.
