Does the Asus p8p67 support this ram?
My MoBo
ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

My ram
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9Q-16GBXL

When I look up the boards memory compatibility I do not see it. http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8P6...

When I read the description on the ripjaws i see "Designed Specifically for Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs and P67 Platforms"

I am experiencing the random freezing even as I type this.

I've just read about the ASUS MoBo Sata errors. So I'm not sure what is going on and if my computer is having issues due to my MoBo.

A little history. I've replaced my MoBo already along with my GPU and SSD and I'm still experiencing the random lag.

Here is my system specs:
i7-2600k
Corsair H60
Asus P8P67 Pro
EVGA GeForce GTX 580
16GB (4x4GB) G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 1866

Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB SATA III
1TB Samsung F3 7.2k rpm
WD 500G 10k rpm

I've not seen anywhere on the site or in the manual that supports this stick. Funny because I was recommended this build by many people and had it checked. I think i'll just get a new memory that I know is compatible with this board.

Yeah this is my second SSD. Thing is that I am having the same issues as before. So now im thinking its my memory, but I've also read about the SSD having issues.

I got a replacement a week ago and I figured that since this one ran the same it must be the memory.

I looked in BIOs and its defaulting my sticks to 1600 rather than 1866. I tried adjusting them to 1866 and my computer was unstable and barely able to root. Had to CL RAM to restart and set my setting back.

Do you think I should look into another SSD?

Try with only one stick of RAM at a time and see if it still does it.

I'm going to look into this
http://forum.crucial.com/t5/Solid-State-Drives-SSD/Solu...
It seems like a potential fix for me regarding the C300
Thanks.

I am in the middle road of it being the ram or SSD.

After read that forum it pins me back on my previous belief about the SSD having issues with the Intel drivers as well as the SATAs

G.Skill Ripjaws X should run with no problem on that P67 board. I'm running G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB (4GBx2) (basically half of what you have) on my ASUS P8Z68-V Pro mobo right now. I also ran memtest with this RAM and it's 100% working, it also shows all 8GB in windows 7. If your browser is freezing during typing and such, it might be more of a Windows error then a hardware error. Try running windows repair and see what it can find.
