Random freezes with PC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I built a pc for a friend recently, and he called and said that he have been having random freezes in Windows 7.

His build:
i7 2600k
Corsair 1600 8GB DDR3
ATI 6850
Asus P8P67 LE


I turned off the hybrid sleep/sleep in the power settings, made sure the ram had the right timings, volts, and speed at bios, I ran memtest and passed, cpu(not OC) temps are idling at 40c and at load at 63c so it is not overheating. The GPU is not overheating nor overclocked.

I noticed the freezing happens when I let it idle for a while, but my friend told me it has happened while he was on it. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I was freezing up a few weeks ago also. New build and I couldn't figure it out. Long story short. I took everything apart, but left the mobo mounted. When hooking up the connections, I realized there was a cap over cpu power source. I originally had a 4 prong connector going to it. Took the cap and boom! A larger power source. So now I have a 6 prong powering the cpu. I was under powering it the entire time. No problems since. But that's just my situation. Good luck

You're powering your CPU with a 6-pin? Really?

Did you mean to type 8-pin?

I would run memtest to see if there's an issue with his RAM.

I ran memtest as I stated before but no problems with the RAM. I will check on the CPU 4pin power connector, but I somehow doubt that is my problem. But I do appreciate the advices fellas.

Any more suggestions?
