Issues with recent computer build Tags: New Build Computer Systems Last response: August 21, 2009 2:56 AM in Systems Share CaptJenkins August 21, 2009 2:30:33 AM OK so here is my issue. I recently purchased the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 CPU. Ever since i installed it after about 2-4 hours my computer screen locks up and the sound begins to stutter. This usually happens when i browse th web or close a web browser but never in games (at least not yet). I have the latest BIOS and Drivers, and nothing is running above 40 C when idling or browsing. Specs: BFG 9800 GTX+ 512MB Graphics Card EVGA 790i Ultra SLI Motherboard Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 CPU Corsair 4GB RAM 1600MHz 1TB harddrive (nothing special) Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit Please, almost anything will help at this point in time. Update: So after a bit of testing i noticed that it consistently happens after 4 hours every time. This time it froze during Team Fortress 2, but the sound didn't stutter this time around. Please anything, and i mean anything helps. More about : issues recent computer build hunter315 August 21, 2009 2:33:33 AM did you manually set the timings and voltages on the ram? Run memtest for atleast 5 passes to make sure your RAM is error free. CaptJenkins August 21, 2009 2:47:09 AM No i did not manually set the timings and voltages on the ram, and right now im running the memtest, ill post the results after 4 more tries.

CaptJenkins August 21, 2009 2:52:30 AM Ok, Ill keep that in mind. CaptJenkins August 21, 2009 2:56:11 AM Ok so after one test it said there were no memory errors detected, ill do it one more time.
