Hello all again! Unfortunately, for me lol, I am back. My last post was about my mobo not using the RAM in slot 3&4, which was found to be a defective motherboard.
Anyways, this time it is another problem. I am getting random, but somewhat frequent lockups with my build. The Bios is up to date along with all the new drivers. My build:
Mobo: Gigabyte z68xp-ud3 (NEW)
CPU: i7 2600k (NEW)
RAM: 2x4GB G.SKill && 2x2GB G.Skill (Dual Channeled correctly)
GPU: Geforce GTX 460
PSU: Black Widow 850w
Storage: 60GB SSD
Display: Running Dual monitor (No problems with old mobo / setup)
-I have double / triple checked the connections
-Not an overheating issue
-The one thing I can think of that might do something is maybe old drivers from my old motherboard are conflicting with my new motherboard??? I don't know if that is possible, but it is my only lead atm lol.
-I would love to not have to do a fresh install since I am without a SATA DVD drive atm.
So.. I found out it was my RAM last night. My 2gb sticks run at a lower frequency than my 4gb sticks and for some reason this motherboard does not automatically lower the frequency of the higher ones. There is also no way that I have found to go manually do it. Pretty odd since a pos ASUS mobo I have can do it but my brand new z68xp ud3 can't..
Thanks for all your help and suggestions roaringdragon, this thread has been resolved.
