New build on computer system crashing ALOT thougth it was Ram but may be MB
Posted on 2010-08-30
PROBLEM: when i have all 4 sticks of ram in the computer crashes within 2-60 mintues of running in windows. Never crashed durning prime test (but only ran for a like 30 minutes)
I am guessing it is a voltage issue, but i'm not fully sure if it is the NB or CPU/NB voltage i need to increase and by how much. I am thinking it has to due with the low power.
While typing this I had prime running and it did crash with in about 30 minutes.
hmmm now it has crashed on boot into windows twice...
Running Memtest86 now to see if i get any errors with the Ram. any helps or ideas for testing or what the problem might be would be very helpful.
PROBLEM2: Half the time when the system reboots the ether net port is only connect to the local network and will not connect to the internet. I have to ether reboot or reinstall the driver to get it working.... not sure if this has any relation or not (possible bad board ?)
PROBLEM3: before the system started crashing I did try to up the cpu to 4Ghz it started fine the started to crash a few times as i was playing with it. the heat never got very high, but at some point it crashed my SSD. i was not able to recover it and when i put into paragon hard disk manager it was unable to do anything with it because of IO Errors, It is normal or easy to fry a SSD ? I am starting to wonder if my MB is bad ? or maybe the PSU ? how do you tell ?

I have not built a new computer for me in a long time (a couple for work, but they were simple work machines based on low prices)
I do a fair amount of Editing HD video for my wifes studio so i used this as an excuse for spending a extra for fun and not have to buy again for a bit.
Yes I know Intel chips are faster for video editing, but I wanted the 6 core for future products and just so i didn't buy again (and I would have spent more with Intel)
