  1. Could be anything really...I had a bad RAM stick once, took forever to find it since it happened on random occasions, could be that , Especially if it happened during memtest
  2. switch out 1 stick of ram, test, try the other one test... Sounds like ram
  3. Well I've tested 2 sticks by themselves so far and it has happen on both of them and I havn't gotten around to the other 2....(have to remove the video card to put in the stick easily :/) Will test them in a bit as right now I want food.


    Well I just ran a memtest and it went threw an completed and it said no errors on a stick that I've been crashing with.
  4. Ive done a registery cleaner and that seem to have help my crashing but I still crashed once in a 12 hour period. Can my psu be my problem was looking at my video cards and psu after a friend suggested to check them.
  5. run your system with just 8GB (slot 1 and 3) and only one GPU (remove the card) for while and see if it still crashes.

    also are the any errors in your event -> system logs?

    mkay will do that and yes there's a few or so.....
  7. Come down with a cold(feeling better now) and computer stop freezing then it did it once after 12 hours of being on then twice in a day and then back to every 5mins to 20 mins. yesterday and today.

    I have took out my video cards and ran them both in the same slot (will be testing them in another pci-e slot in a bit)

    I've pulled the video and now using intell graphics to see if I still have this problem...Still having the problem without the video cards....
