Specs
ASUS P8Z77-V LK
Intel Core i5-2310 Sandy Bridge 2.9GHz
Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon HD 7870 GHz

Ok, this is my first pc build, and it's been about 7 days. It has been, however, freezing on an almost daily basis. No BSOD, everything just stops, and it seems a bit random.

I have a hunch that it may be the memory that is causing the freezes.

The memory specs list timings at 9-9-9-24 and a frequency of 1600.
CPU-Z shows 11-11-11-28 and a frequency of 802.4mhz

Then again, I'm not sure if I'm reading this right as I am a newbie.

What do you guys think the problem is?


Also, memtest showed no problems.

802 x 2 = 1604mhz that's fine.

You need to go into the bios and set the timings to 9 9 9 24, also 1t might be causing the issues, set it to 2t, might as well look at your ram voltage set that to the recommended by the manufacturer as well: 1.5v.

Post back if it helped.

You may have to run the memtest longer, perhaps much longer, or try another memtest. That memory is low quality, and CPU-Z has revealed its overclocked nature.

I changed auto to XMP, and hopefully it's okay now. Thanks for the replies!
