I have a new rig that I can't get stable. I've memtested the new memory, changed the HDD, swapped video cards, and reinstalled various OSs. The only thing I can figure is there's something wrong with the Phenom or the Mobo.
I can break it by doing one of two things: Playing Skyrim for about 45 minutes will make the system hang yet the mouse will still work sometimes.
Clicking on too many apps as soon as Windows loads will make the mouse freeze.
I've had to hard reset the system probably 30 times in the last week. Every time I turn the machine on it ends with a hard shut-down.
Here's the specs:
Phenom II 960T BE Zosma stock speed
Rosewill aftermarket heatsink&fan w/ArcticSilver5
Asus M5A99X mobo
Gskill DDR3 PC-12800 stock
Hitachi Desktar 320gb HDD
FSP Blue Storm II 500W psu
XFX GeForce 9600GSO
Update: It just now hung, but the mouse still had movement for about 2 minutes, with none of the screen reacting to mouse-overs or clicks, and no Ctrl-Alt-Delete response. Then the mouse froze. I had just pointed at the edge of a frozen window and the cursor changed to the double-arrow, so Windows is still working in its dying moments.
