    Having problems with my new PC, anyone can help?

    Just bought a new PC with these specs:
    Motherboard: Z87x D3H
    Processor: i7 4771 @ 3.5 GHz
    Memory: 2x4gb Kingston HyperX 2400MHz
    GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX760 with WindforceX3

    Nothing is overclocked and I'm having crashes at most games

    Solutions I have tried: 1. Installing older Nvidia drivers (currently at 331.65)
    2. Installing new windows

    Questions I have: Which BIOS settings should I use for the memory? I already clocked my memory at 2400MHz but didn't change the voltage and the XMP is turned off, am I supposed to change the voltage or turn on XMP?

    Reformatting fixes that most of the time...

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    Okay just to make some things straight, I didn't overclock anything, no reformatting won't fix it cause I tried, nothing is wrong about cooling (I've been watching the temps all the time), the PSU can handle the PC (I calculated it more than once).
    I've read that 2400 MHz memory is unstable and causes problems so I downclocked it to 1600 MHz, gonna test soon.

    Describe what you mean by crashing. Crash to desktop, blue screen, frozen, artefacts? Could be fuckin anything.

    Crashing to desktop and sometimes it lags and bluescreens after 4-5 crashes.
