Ran memtest for 9 and something hours, both ram sticks passed 14 tests without a single error.

Now, how do I test the motherboard itself ?

Like I said in the 1st post, I'm only running 1 of them right now, the other 1 is at the shop getting checked out (it was making an irritating ticking noise ever since I took it out of the box, but it's performance was flawless)

Now that I think about it, all these problems started after I used the 2nd card as the main card (about 1 week after I took the 1st 1 out)! but I tried to stress it and nothing happened, these problems seems to be random, sometimes they happen while I'm not using the PC, sometimes while I'm using it...

Do you guys have the new revision of the p67 boards? Remember the 1st gen intel released had a problem with the sata ports that caused data corruption.

Yes, it's the B3 revision, which supposedly fixed the sata issues of the previous boards.

Minutes after my last reply, it froze again on me, I decided to remove the windows entirely and install a new 1, installed the latest main drivers and the GPU driver from the CD, now updating windows etc.

Anyway, will let you know if anything happens on this new installation.

Yay, got my 1st freeze on the new windows, now I have eliminated the windows, the newest nvidia driver, MSE from the list of possible software causers, next step is removing nvidia completely and removing the card itself then installing an ATI card (to eliminate that the card itself is defective or not), if I still get a freeze then will try another PSU and/or send the MB to the shop.



Edit: installed the HD5850 I have, which reminded me of the terrible noise of it's fan which lasted for months (all of the sudden the fan speed goes lower by 200-300 rpms then goes back to it's normal speed which has nothing to do with being idle or not, oh and the very high idle temp of it which is sitting at 60c when the fan is on auto, I was about to send this card to the shop to get it fixed before all these problems started, it's a good thing I took my time. Updates on any new freezes next, stay tuned.

Edit1: Something new just happened (or could be related to an issue with F2 Bios), I downloaded the latest amd driver, installed it, it required a restart so I let it do it, the windows restarted the system, right after windows turned off, all of the sudden the MB shut the power, then powered on, then shut the power then powered on and here I'm writing this now.
This could be nothing (an F2 bios issue) or could be a new symptom.

Edit2: Never mind, I'm pretty sure it;s related to the F2 bios issue, I remember it doing that back before I updated to F4 then it was gone and only came back when I reverted back to F2 bios.

So guys, it's been 3 hours since I installed the AMD card, nothing bad happened so far "aside from the re-restarting issue caused by the F2 bios", no hard hangs yet.

However the eventlog has shown few errors saying Event ID 11 "The driver detected a controller error on \\Device\\Harddisk3\\DR3." 5 times in a row, 2 hours later just a warning about Tcpip after I started downloading some torrents "TCP/IP has chosen to restrict the scale factor due to a network condition. This could be related to a problem in a network device and will cause degraded throughput." I thought Windows 7 removed tcpip limitation!, other than that, no issues so far thank God.

Now, I would like to know which HDD is supposed to be Harddisk3!! There is Disk0, Disk1 and Disk2 (the green one).. So, who is Harddisk3??

Edit: oh guess what, it froze yet again, now that rules out the Nvidia card, I just removed the newest disk aka "the 2T green", I ran all official diagnostics and checks on all disks before and non showed any problem, but either way, now I will see what happens without the newest disk, if I get another freeze then I truly have 1 last thing to test and that's the PSU, I have my old PSU (Thank God I haven't sold it yet) it's OCZ Fatal1ty 700w, if it still freezes with that PSU then I truly have tested everything that could have been tested and only then I will send the damn MB to the shop.

Edit1: You guessed again, it wasn't the newest HDD, so I just removed the PSU, placed my old PSU, removed the 2nd HDD, now running only with my system HDD, now I've ran out of options, 1 more freeze and I take it apart then send that nightmare to the shop and install my good old AMD system which worked perfectly for a year at less than 1/3 of the price.

Okay, after I changed PSU and removed the 2nd HDD, I left the system running safe mode, I slept for 8 hours and it didn't freeze, right now I'm in normal windows, if it freezes then we are back to square 1, I will have to eliminate software, if it doesn't freeze then it was the 2nd HDD causing all this (entering a partition of the 2nd HDD was when the 1st problem started (BSOD "Unknown Hard Error" )..

Edit: Yup, it froze in windows, so now back to square 1 like I never did anything at all in the last 5 days, running safe mode with networking now to at least eliminate it's driver.

Edit1: disabled all non Microsoft apps are services from running in startup, entered normal windows, now waiting for a freeze.

I have dismantled the entire system, going to send that MB to the shop and probably sell the rest, I shouldn't have gone back to intel, I forgot how nightmarish it was over the years.
