I have just assembled a new computer about a month ago. I ordered the components and built the PC myself. The problem is, the damn things is super unstable ! Firefox crashes on a regular basis, Crysis has trouble loading levels and often does the ''Crysis has stopped working'' and i get blue screens of death (stop messages and memory dumps). The stop message i get the most is the 00X000000a1. I tested my HD, my ram (windows diagnostic found no errors with ram). I did try to but my ram in slot 2 and 4 but the computer would not even boot I also tried to increase volt on ram but to no avail...
Anyone have any advice ?
Power Supple : XFX 650 watt
GPU : XFX radeon 5850
CPU : AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
Motherboard : GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5 rev 1.
Ram : G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
For the ram voltage i have it set to 1.545 right now. I did try 1 stick at a time and it did seem to work better (but slower ).
GPU : idle around 50 celcius and load around 80 celcius.
For the cpu i have no idea of the temperature.
I haven't run any memtest86 ... ill download it, run it tonight and come back to you guys.
edit:... Looks like three of us had similar ideas at the same time [/quotemsg]
Reminds me of a remark I made at a winery in California. I stated that most of the Napa Cabs tasted similar. The wine-maker laughed and told me that they all learned wine-making from the same place - UC Davis! LOL!
Your test results on both Prime95 and MemTest, seem to point to a defective RAM or RAM stability. My recommendation is to manual set the RAM to the specifications listed on the actual RAM stick and retest. If you still get an error, you can test one stick at a time or just look to replace with new RAM and see if it solves the issue.
