I've installed 2 games so far, and currently downloading Assassin's Creed 3 and Battlefield 3, but i haven't experienced any problems playing CS:GO for hours, with several programs running etc, while when i play League of Legends, V-Sync ON or OFF, graphics very low or high, different resolutions  etc., i have experienced screen freezes, usually bicolored, or black ones, like bicolored stripes (pink/green f.i), i still get sounds from the game or Teamspeak, but i can't atl tab or ctrl alt suppr, i have to hard reboot my computer, and this can happen after 7 hours of gaming or 10 minutes. Its really random

happens with only League of Legends, even though nothing is running beside
Latest version, had this trouble with the 2 latest patches (since i'm using my new computer, 2-3 weeks)

CPU Details
- include model, speed, number of cores (ex: AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Ed.)

Additional Details
used memtest86; one of the 2 RAM's was defectuous, i had it returned and installed the new one.

in the bios, only information in red is : Chafan 1 544RPM

i've tested my system temp while i'm playing and before the freezes, i'm around 40° everywhere.

Thanks in advance, this is getting really annoying as i'm a semi-pro LoL player and i get randoms 3min dcs pretty often (every 2-3 games, can be twice a game)

Have you checked the new one as well? Just to make sure it's not the mobo or the dimm itself.

Yep, it didn't find any problems after i put the new one in.

Just downloaded the latest beta drivers, i still had the problem the 1st second of a game and 40s after i got in the game after the reboot.

Edit : i just downloaded Diablo 3, pc froze after 30min, temp still around 40-50°... Guess i have to take it back ?

This is an issue that Riot has known about for over 2 months now and has done nothing to fix. It started with complaints from NVidia users, and then the complaints from ATI users started pouring in. I use an AMD HD 7850, and I have the same problem at random. Game will freeze, go black screen, and after 10 - 15 seconds it will come back.

Here is the thread on the Riot forums.

Any help from ATI would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, this might be it, the thing is i had this problem after playing diablo for 15min, and its not necessarily a black screen, most of the times it's a colored striped screen, even tho i still can talk through teamspeak or skype. Do you think it might also be a hardware issue on top of the current problem with the LoL game ?
