I have had my new workstation at home for 2 days
and it seems to be regularly freezing up. I have had to switch it off like 10 times and the last time on restarting
I get a blue screen, then windows tried to repair itself and then said it couldnt repair itself and would shut down. how much damage am I doing by turning it off at the wall like this all the time?
Ahh yes well the guys from computer hope have been through my computer with a fine tooth comb and that is what they say,
memtest went fine but didn't recognise the chipset.
here is a photo of the screen https://sites.google.com/site/2flynewmedia/photo
and CPUID CPUZ reckons that the 32GB DDR3 ram that is supposed to be running at 1600htz is actually only 800!
so they reckon this is the problem
What is the best ram I can get to suit i7 3630K and x79 gigabit MOBO?
and also how do you think I should approach the guys who built this rig? Understandable error or total fail?
