Default New Build Freezes Up

I recently built a new gaming rig with parts from The assembly process and initial boot went pretty well, but as soon as I installed W7 and loaded up the (correct) drivers for my Mobo and components the system began crashing frequently (every ~5 minutes). When it does crash, the screen freezes up and is completely unresponsive. The crashes can occur anytime, including the splash screen and BIOS. Occasionally, the system even turns itself off prior to the splash screen. I initially thought the problem was due to faulty drivers, but it persisted even when I loaded up the outdated drivers from the disk included with my Mobo. I tested the ram, but Windows memory check came up with nothing and the "Mem OK!" light is off. I want to get this thing working ASAP, so anything anyone can think of will be considered. Thanks!

Specs below:

Cpu: Intel i7 3770k
Gpu: Geforce 680 GTX
RAM: 16 GB (4x4) Corsair Vengeance LP (running at 1333)
PSU: 750 Watt
HDD: 2 TB WD Caviar Green at SATA 6.0 GB/s
