I'm having serious problems whenever I load Games[Counter-strike, WoW, LOL, HON] or VLC media player. It randomly freezes for 10 seconds, forces me to ALT+TAB and C+A+D. This usually happens after I CTL ALT DEL it freezes, and does not allow me to do anything. Sitting on desktop hasn't caused this freeze yet.
After about 10 seconds it'll unfreeze and run fine. Temperatures seem okay, My specs are:
INTEL CORE I7-920
4gig g-skill DDR3
Creative SB Live! External
Syncmaster CRT 955DF
It's been happening for quite some time, I built this computer around the start of this year.
What exact G.Skill RAM kit do you have? Have you manually set the RAM speed, timings, and voltage to their rated specs in the BIOS? Have you performed an overnight run of Memtest86+ to test for RAM errors?
What PSU do you have? A low-end PSU will cause all sorts of stability issues.
There are a lot of G.Skill DDR3 1600 kits out there that run at different timings and voltages. That doesn't really narrow it down. Do you happen to have the model number of your RAM? They should also have a sticker on them that lists their rated timings, voltage, and model number. Running DDR3 1600 RAM under "auto" settings rarely works very well.
