Windows 7 - 790i Mobo - Crashing - Help!

Hello,

Here are the specs on my machine, I am getting freezing on startup mostly, after I reset a few times, I hear the fans die down and the mobo beeps and I'm generally in at that point, although sometimes it crashes on the startup screen, and sometimes I lose USB connections. I think it's power related, and have done a lot of searching but to no avail.

Anyone who can take a look at my setup and let me know what you think - I would really appreciate it. Thanks!!!

You have mixed RAM, 2 @1066MHz and 2 @1333MHz. Try writing down the specs on the RAM stickers: speed in MHZ, Latencies (X-X-X-Y), and voltage. Then open the BIOS and set the RAM speed, latencies, and voltage to lowest numbers shown on each set of RAM. Then Save and Exit the BIOS. This should reduce your crashes. Mixing RAM confuses the BIOS and causes unexpected crashes and BSODs.
