Im having an issue with my computer... it is randomly freezing while playing and lisning to music.
It started happening some time ago but it could be only coincidense but now its becoming impossible.
Today while i was seeing a movie from my favorite serie it freezed 3 times... the symtoms begins like the sound stops and 5 secs later puff FREEZE but it unfreezes if i.wait like 3~5 mins and it comes back to life....
i just reset the bios so the speed is @ 1066mhz default values from bios and im only running with 2 sticks and it has freezed again i used furmark ,prime 95 and windows media player playing music and it frozed like 20 secs later when i closed the programs and came back to life as i said before.
My cpu temps are really good with 100% are at 45º it has a noctua 12p on it... more then enough.
i just went and download the new memtest 86 but i only can run it with 3 Gb of each pack of 3 Gb's ... can´t understand why but i just made it run a pack at a time and both made a sucessful pass... can someone help me just to know if i doing something wrong please.
Do you mean it's giving errors when all six sticks are in, but if you just use three at a time, none of the six sticks gives an error?
That's odd, but I do know that when you fill all your RAM slots, sometimes the RAM will take more voltage to run. Don't know if that would affect memtest results, though. Maybe someone with more background on the subject can shed some light.
