Hey there everybody, I've lurked these forums for a while and I've finally come up with a problem that I can't find a solution to.
My system seems to randomly lock up completely, requiring a restart. It can happen while playing a system-intensive game, chatting in a skype call, or anything else really.
My computer has been slightly faulty since I put it together a few months ago, usually it would restart and give me a message about a Hypertransport Sync Flood Error.
However, in recent times this has been exchanged with full on lockups, with no error message upon the next boot.
Here are my components:
Motherboard - ASUS M4A79T Deluxe
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965
Ram - Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB 1600
Video Card - XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EADS 1TB
PSU - OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W
I've read many threads, but I can't find an solution that has worked for me quite yet. Is there any way short of buying a new processor (I suspect that that's the problem) that I can fix this problem?
The defaults were still causing me errors,
I just manually keyed in a value for the CPU and RAM voltage that people reported to be stable, so far there seems to be no problems other than it's running a bit hotter. The only way I'll be able to tell is with some more time.
I had the Voltage at 1.3 for a while, but it just locked up again while having Skype and Paint Tool SAI open. I've increased the voltage to 1.4, but I don't think voltage is the issue anymore. Does anyone have an idea of what's causing these lockups?
