As the title says, after my previous problems with "under-volted" memory, it now runs fine... most of the time? Unfortunately now I get sporadic system freezes. No crashes, just freezes... in XP. Sometimes after I log in, sometimes at the log-in screen. Sometimes right after I log in, sometimes after an hour. And I'm not talking the easy ones you can reset with the 3-finger salute. We're talking reset button quality - the ones "the caps-lock key doesn't do anything", "last second of sound keeps repeating" type freezes. And no blue screens either.
Other than that, I have not been able to figure out anything common between freezes. Anybody have any ideas?
What are your idle/load CPU temps? Do you have your RAM manually set to 1600MHz with 7-7-7-20 timings at 1.95v in the BIOS? Have you run Memtest86+ overnight?
If the RAM is set correctly and passes multiple Memtest86+ passes with no errors and your temps look good then I would say your POS Rosewill PSU is causing the freezing problems by supplying unstable power to the system. There's a very good reason that nobody on these forums recommends Rosewill PSU's. They certainly don't contribute to a stable system.
Well, I finally got around to doing a Memtest. I'm currently at 23 passes with 56 errors. Failing addresses seem sporadic (from 42.3MB to 3320.3MB - that I see currently). Just for reference, here's some specs:
From what I can tell, all errors occur in Tst (Test?) 5. Some passes have more errors than others. Failing Address is all over the board. Most "Good" are at 01000000, most "Bad" are 00000000, and most Err-Bits are 01000000. The "most" here means that I have noticed 1 exception, but that's about it
I guess I'll be starting the test with each module separately. Just wondering if all this error variety is indicating an unstable PSU rather than faulty memory. Any ideas?
