MOTHERBOARD: Asus Rampage IV Formula CPU: Intel I7-3930k @ 3.2GHz GPU: Radeon 6870 1GB RAM: 2 x 8GB DDR3 1600 PSU: 850w More about : build freezing SkyWalker1726 May 21, 2012 11:03:15 AM Try Tapping the "TAB" button before windows boots , enter the memory test&Diag function , try testing ur ram for errors ( extended ) , if none found , try re installing windows m 0 l ubercake May 21, 2012 11:48:55 AM I agree with SkyWalker1726. I've seen that in the past a few times. Once it was a RAM issue and another time it was an issue with a short with a screw stuck behind the motherboard. m 0 l Related resources New Build keeps freezing randomly - Forum New gaming build keeps Freezing - Forum First New PC Build, System Keeps Freezing - Forum New Computer Build keeps freezing - Forum Windows 7 keeps freezing while using new build - Forum Can't find your answer ?

The Motherboard is on auto 1.6v and my dims are 1.5v so was an easy fix, just turned volts down in bios. m 0 l ubercake May 29, 2012 9:20:28 AM So by default the motherboard over-volted the RAM? This is unusual and usually a smaller level of extra voltage to the RAM won't cause a freeze up. I really hope this fixes the issue permanently for you. I would continue to monitor the situation. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
