I recently buld my system: 2500k, p8p67, WD caviar black 640Gb, gtx 460 hawk, cougar s550 PSU.
I've installed win 7 64 OS, but something go wrong! Few time in day system hanging for ~20sec. (not responding). I already reinstall OC twice, but to no avail. :( 
I use sata3 hdd, that because it could not have intel chipset problem.
help, pls!

Have you tried to overclock it? Was it pre-overclocked?

I try to overclock it as well, but I got the same problem on stock mhz!

maybe there are some programms for test my system?

Does the hanging lead to permenant hang crashes where you need to restart the PC?
It could be an issue with the RAM. What speed is it running at in the BIOS? The Asus boards have issues trying to run at 1600mhz.

Or it could be just a dodgy RAM module. Try running the machine with one and then the other one (assuming you have two) and see if the issue goes away (it may be one module is faulty)

You can download and run memtest too (though I don't bother until I have tested the RAM individually, only if the problem persists with each module)

Obviously it could be a number of issues, but RAM is usually one of the easiest to test.

Well you should try and test your idle temperatures and your temperatures under load (if will give you a reading before crashing). The CPU temps.

Use coretemp:

And CPUz:

And something like Prime95 works on the Sandy Bridge platform:

Open the Coretemp program to see your idle temps.
Open the CPUz program to see the current voltage and clock speed of your CPU.
Then run the Prime95 program and select "small FFTs" as your test, then click start.

You will hopefully be able to see the maximum temperature of your CPU under load in the Coretemp program. If your temps are going very high, even at stock speeds, then something is wrong.

ONE THING TO TRY NOW:

Reset your motherbords BIOS to it's default settings. This way you will know that the computer should work OK at stock settings. Have you tried resetting the BIOS to defaults?

Thanks.
Crashes when i restart system, it was only two times. Everthing more or less works fine, only sometime make a loading for long time, or this problem, when everything stops for about 20 sec., then I can move only cursor, but windows does'n woks!
RAM run at 1600mhz. On MoBo there is 4 slots for ddr3, A1,A2,B1,B2. I got 2x 2Gb, and recommended memory config for me is A2, B2! But when I put RAM on A2, B2 socket I can't boot my system, that because i put RAM in A2, B1! Maybe there is my problem?! I try to test RAM module's.

thanks, tomorrow i will test temperature changes, and post them.

temps idle is about 30c on stock, and about 60c when run Intel burn test on high stress level. I think i have correct drivers, i put them from cd! But ir very hard to OC my gtx 460! When I put more core voltage(on msi afterburner), after apply, voltage jump back on stock level.

and I have a new problem this morning, I can't see gadgets, there only black spot! wtf again? :sarcastic:

I cheack each RAM in each slot, and everything was fine

I test my HDD with HD Tune pro, and i get the following results:


what do you think? HDD is only three weeks old.
