Computer keeps freezing, brand new

Brand new computer is freezing, how do I make it stop? So I just built a new computer myself for the first time, its worked great so far, but it occasionally freezes. Nothing happens it just stops responding and I am forced to do a hard restart. What could be the problem? Could my CPU be overheating, I only ran my computer for a few hours (its happened more than once though with less use).
