PC freeze with static loop?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi I have some problems with my computer and I was wondering if any of you guys can help me out. My computer keeps freezing while gaming and instead of the usual sound loop, it emits a continuous static sound like an untuned radio. The mice and keyboard becomes unresponsive and the only way out of it was to press the reset button.

My Cpu and video card both never exceeds 60c during gaming so I doubt its heat issue. My Cpu is OC to 4.0GHz with a generous amount of Vcore which is 1.26v and also passes Prime95 blend test. My Ram is running in XMP mode and pass 2 hours of Memtest86+, also tried different Ram slots combinations. My graphics card is lightly overclocked (800/1600/2000) using adequate voltage (1.025v) and passes Futuremark and other benchmarks. The Psu is brand new and was purchased a week ago but it already had this problem with my older 620w Psu from Seasonic.

I have the latest bios for my motherboard and fresh drivers for my graphics card and other components.

To sum it up; the problem is either the Ram, Motherboard related issue, or the graphics card is defective in some way.

Yeah no freezing with buzzing noise. I'm just curious what component could cause it so it could be resolved/replaced.

Only time I've experienced what you have experienced is with an unstable overclock.

Ok so its either the cpu, ram or graphics card then. I know the cpu is already being fed by adequate vcore and pass Prime95 blend test, ram is in XMP mode but theres a chance 1.5v isn't enough for 1600MHz, and we have the graphics card were its made by MSI and has a lot of report of being unstable out of the box/faulty card but I fixed it by adding the right amount of voltage.

The problem definitely exist within these components but which one or is it all?

EDIT: It can't be the cpu OC, lack of vcore would automatically shut the system then restart the system which I already fixed by adding more vcore.

Try adding some voltage to each of the suspected parts. Only way to find out, & you're the only one who can tell, unless you buy me a plane ticket to come help you .


But you said it doesn't do it at stock? Then none of your parts are faulty.

It's your ram, trust me. Load up your usual 4.9GHz OC but back your ram down to 1333MHz with 1.5v and let the board set the timings automatically (SPD, not XMP). If it stops crashing, it was a bad ram OC. If it still crashes, you might have a dying stick(s).

I just spent a few days playing with some potential ram overclocks myself. Timings that were fine on my x58 setup crashed within minutes when working in Premiere. For some reason, even 1.7v to the ram wouldn't stabilize settings that were happy on x58 at 1.62v.

From the looks of it I should try adding more voltage for the graphics card. I wont bother adding voltage for the ram since it was ment to run at 1.5v with XMP and cpu is fully stable with current voltage.

With my ram at auto settings and voltage, the settings are 9-9-9-28-2T @ 1.65v. Now I don't think using that amount of voltage is a good idea with this cpu or is it?

Then don't use Auto. Manually set the speed to 1333MHz, manually set the voltage to 1.5v, and choose SPD for the timings. After rebooting, check BIOS/Windows to make sure you're actually getting 1.5v (my Z68 board runs 0.03v lower than BIOS setting, my X58 board ran 0.02v higher than BIOS setting).

Edit: But to answer your question, Intel stated that 1.55v +/- 5% (approx 1.58v) is the maximum safe limit, although plenty of people seem to be running 1.65v without any issues.
