I don't want to send it back! I just want to know whats going on with it! The freezes are not that frequent! I would be happy to look at my logs and anything else!

Error number on the BSOD? 0x00.....?

I don't really know but it never happened again so its not a big deal.

Without the number it is almost impossible to say what the problem is - see if any errors show in event viewer.

ok here it is : 0x00000124
it was caused by hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe

Have a read here for what it is and what to try for a start.

but I'm guessing GPU or CPU either way it should go back.

Is it overclocked? crashes on steam games?
