Llano build restart problem *Very odd*

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I just bought an F1A75-M Pro motherboard and A8-3850 processor for my media build. The rig went together fine but I am getting what seems like graphics related issues. The system will restart at random which seems like something isn't getting enough voltage. The only thing I can compare it to is when I overclock a graphics card and don't provide it with enough voltage on the core when it switches to 3d mode. The computer just does a hard reset or will freeze on a screen with a bunch of artifacts scattered about.

I've messed around in the bios for hours tweaking voltages and settings to no avail. I'm not sure if there is a separate voltage for the graphics portion of the apu but I can't find it. I've also flashed to the latest bios but that didn't seems to help. Does anyone have any insight into this? I've always had good luck with my AMD builds and this is the first one giving me trouble (Damn you FM1 )

What are the rest of the system specs?
Worse than crack.

Sounds like your ram isn't stable enough. Have tried a few boards and they all have some ram compatibility issues.

Try drop down to the lowest ram divider and see if it persists, if it does stick your ripjaws in and see what's up.

I've had hypers up to 2400 on a couple of boards and through prime 95 at 2200 which is usually the best mark of stability but will instantly fail in 3d

I would say it's a RAM issue. Give Memtest a few runs to see if anythings up.

Long time no see

Unfortunately, 2d stability does not = 3d stability with these things.

Have got some screens to proove it but I left my flash drive in manchester last week Might get it back at the weekend.

Long time no see indeed pal . I've just finished my summer semester from college. It was a huge time hog lol. But hopefully I'll be able to get back into things for the rest of my break and contribute to the forum.

Thanks for the quick reply! Ram could be an issue with this board because its some "old school" D9 stuff that runs at 1.85v with 7-7-6-18 timings as stock settings. I'll try some G.Skill Eco sticks I have in another system and give it a shot.

Well I guess it WAS the ram that was causing the issue with the random restarts. My G.Skill Eco's are working flawlessly at the rated speeds of 7-8-7-24 1T at 1600Mhz. Thanks for the advice el gappo and YangerD!
