I have a dual-boot machine (Win 7 64bit and OSX Lion) and I've been having some freezing issues. Most frequently, I can boot up, start running a game, and then it freezes about 15 minutes in.
I have the i7 2600k overclocked to about 4.3Mhz. I have my RAM overclocked as well, but I tried changing that back to auto and it actually froze even sooner (in the login process). *sidenote: one problem with the ram settings is that I don't know the exact timings (can't find them listed ANYWHERE) so I sort of have to guess.*
I've also had a few KPs on the mac side, but I think I tracked them down to issues with the USB ports, and I don't have anything in those now.
1) Are the freezings KPs on the Windows side?
2) Is there any sort of log I can look at to see what is going on?
3) Any thoughts on what could be causing this? This is a really conservative overclock, and the one recommended by Gigabyte at that.
4) I'm not getting the BSOD--could it still be the SSD?
Win SSD: Kingston HyperX 3k
Mac SSD: Samsung 830
Graphics: EVGA GTX 570
RAM: G SKill Ares 2x8gb DDR3 1600 PC3 12800
Apple USB keyboard.
I also have a firewire audio interface (saffire pro 40) connected.
Thanks for the speedy reply!
It's funny, that was actually my plan, but the freezes seem to come in groups and then disappear for a while. I pushed it decently hard with the cpu still OCed for the last few days, and it has yet to show any instability. I guess I should wait until it happens again, and THEN return to stock, just to make sure?
