I recently built a new comp with these parts:

Athlon II x3 435 Rana (tri core 2.9 ghz)
asrock m3a785gmh/128 motherboard
OCZ 2 x 1 GB OCZ3G10662GK
XFX radeon 4650 512 ddr2
i ACCed by processor to a phenom II x4 b35 and it worked fine for many days. and i checked my dram frequency in cpuz and it was always 532 mhz everyday. the ratio being 3:8
However. just yesterday while i was browsing and chatting i started noticing slowdowns in loading programs and everything, so i decided to check cpuz....and here is what i found.

so...yeah i kind of panicked.....and shut down my pc. restarting it wouldnt change the frequency back to normal either....
I did try reinserting the ram modules and the frequency jumped back to 532 ...however when i next clicked my comp on today it was back to 400......and the modules are definitely in place....my cpu was untouched so i dont see the reason.

Also just now i read the sticker on the mem stick saying 7-7-7@ 1.6v
and cpuz was showing 1.5v being applied to each module.....so i tried increasing the Dram voltage to 1.59v in the bios and have restarted a couple of times and no problem till now....but it always happens randomly so i'm not really sure.

oh and in the event logger i am getting the corrected hardware error occured..repeatedly......but it was there from day 1...and dont think it has anything to do with the ram....

please help!

Updated the bios to the latest version and it was fixed i think. Not sure how long it will last.
