Can someone help me troubleshoot a spontaneous reboot problem? It occurs usually when I'm doing heavy data processing (using Stata, a statistics program). However, it doesn't appear to be a heat issue (monitoring using Gigabyte's EasyTune 6 while executing heavy statistics code, doesn't reveal temperatures above 100 F, yet it spontaneously shut down/reboots!
What else can cause this? Note: I have NOT overclocked or edited any CPU settings (that I know of).
Thought this would be a common config of a common mobo with common ram. Looking at the GSKILL forum, sounds like some tweaks are needed. I just want to be able to run 8GB of ram, stable, without overclocking. What happened to just plug and play ram?
I've run Memtest86 v2.11-- with all 4 sticks in I get errors beginning on Test 3. I am now testing 1 stick at a time in slot.
My timings using AUTO in BIOS match settings by GSKILL- 5-5-5-15, 1.8v-1.9v
