ok so i just spend a *** LOAD Aka 2200 dollars on my computer. (Custom built i made it by myself)
and all these random freezing occurs? For no reason. And the speakers they loop. Like a sound keeps playing over and over again. Mouse become unresponsive and screen too. Can anyone PLEASE help me with this problem.
I Think I have updated all the drivers
I have the latest BIOS
I have ran MeMTest with ALL ram sticks in for like 10 hours with not one error. Please help
This usually occurs when im doing very heavy intensive editings (almost 75-90% cpu usage) and In my bios i am at the extreme setting that comes with most asus mobos)
So my i7 3930k at 3.2 ghz is now at 3.8 ghz, also my ram which is 1600 speed. Is always set up at 1333 by default and i have to reset the speed and timings when i crash usuallly
Sounds like a RAM related problem. I have had a similar issue before where a certain batch of RAM was not compatible with the motherboard. If you test the ram modules individually they passed, but as soon as the kit is in it fails a memtest.
(download Hirens boot disk - this is really a must have for all techies)
run MEMTEST (is available on the Hiren's boot disk)
I have only even run memtest on individual sticks **after** failing with all sticks installed.....since you passed 10 hours with the kit, albeit with a run a little shorter than I'd like, I'm guessing problem lies elsewhere.
If you are freezing up, you should have the errors defined in event viewer. What are the Event Viewer messages ? Are mini dump files being created (look for *.dmp files on C).
Turn off the extreme settings and see if it occurs..... if not, your overclock isn't cutting it. 4 RAM modules can be a bit too much to handle on these OC settings. I have oft had problems with 4 modules that require reducing timings in order to maintain OC's that I could easily handle w/ two. But again, these problems popped up running a 12 hour memtest and you were able to pass 10 hours.
Still, I'd try w/o the extreme settings. If that solves the problem, do a manual OC instead of the preset. On a side note, you may want to consider Mushkin or Corsair next time around. I can't seem to get the same stability out of Gskill as I do w/ the other two.
