My computer is acting up a little bit, nothing crazy but these "hick-ups" need to go away!
I originally had a tri channel ram set up in my computer (8Gb- 12 Gbin all), but if you notice the motherboard I have you know its not compatible for Tri Channel set up... Don't ask me how it was working but it was, so I just replaced the ram with Ram that is compatible with my motherboard, 16 Gb RipJaw Ram 1866...
Now I am having issues turing on the computer, sometimes in the middle of my gaming, and shutting off the computer... The computer last night ran just fine for me during my 3 hours of play on GW2, but when I tried to shut it down it wouldn't, then froze, and rebooted itself back up. It seems to freeze way to much for a computer that is so brand new, besides the video card. I have the automatic over clocking option turned on in my Bios, and also set the RAM to an XMP profile so its set a 1866.
I just dont know what I am having so many freeze's going on and what the problem is with the shut downs. Also I have the latest BIOS version for the motherboard... I don't know what I am doing wrong, unless you all think my GPU is going out and I need to replace it? OR if its the overclocking?
So I am assuming that the computer was running fine without the hiccups with the old ram and only started having issues after you installed the new ram. If this assumption is correct, have you tried running MemTest on the new ram to ensure the sticks are good?
The old memory was causing hiccups as well, if I would try to type the password in on the login page to quickly it would freeze. Like if I didn't wait 3 sec's to type it would freeze.
The new ram actually seems to make my computer run way more fluidly, obviously because it's made for my motherboard... But still getting this hiccups, but it's NOT freezing when I type my password in anymore.. so confused.
The booting starts up much quicker, and like I said is much more fluid. I just know that the 470 GTX is old and has been put to use like crazy, I don't overclock it but before I got it, it was overclocked. The card has been in use for probably close to 2.5-3 years
