Just built a system for my brother that has not been overclocked at all and the machine is crashing on a regular basis, I get blue screens all the time.
Here are the specs:
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R Motherboard Rev. 2
Intel Core i7 940 CPU
OCZ RAM 6G (3 x 2G) DDR3 PC3-10666 Gold Low-Voltage Triple Channel
Sapphire Toxic 5850 1GB Video Card
1GB Western Digital Hard drive
Any ideas as to why it might be crashing? We took it in to a shop regarding this issue and they apparently adjusted the ram timings. Thought the problem was fixed but after I installed a few programs afterward (Nero etc.), the thing kept on crashing.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
btw, I am using a stock heat sink for the CPU and have an OCZ 700Watt PSU
There is a bit about the cause of the problems with 'system' software at the end of Memory Part IV - "Tweaking and tuning"; I avoid things from anywhere that include 'ring zero' components - GB is not the only offender...
