System Freeze - Bloody frustrated..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I had this system for the past 6 months:

---------------------------------------------

CH4F
1055t, upgraded to 1100t a month ago
Barracuda sata 1tb 7200
XMS3 DDR3 1333 2x2GB
H50
6950 DCUII crossfire

---------------------------------------------

Last week I started getting random freezes and decided to reimage [yesterday] as I never did it after upgrading to the 1100t..

Everything was fine for a couple of hours, but I've been getting the freezes again at totally random times..

I got these conclusions:

-Nothing is overheating, CPU, nor NB/SB, nor the GPUs [recently had them disassembled, cleaned, and artic silver'ed]..
-Happens at random times, no way of predicting it, can not associate it to a program, nor service, no error codes, nor blue screens, and also happens on safe mode..
-A freeze, like having a screenshot on your monitor, everything seems ok buy you unplug/replug the kb/mouse and they will not lit up again, all fans act normally..

I have no idea what's going on, nothing has been touched or manipulated lately with the exception of the GPUs, and as far as I understand ANY component might be involved, from CPU, to MB, GPU, RAM, HDD..

No idea where to start.. All inputs appreciated..

Have you tried resetting your BIOS via the jumper?

This is what I've done so far, or that I missed on my original post:

-Clear CMOS by removing battery
-Disable hibernating [apparently W7 power management and the CH4 don't mix together to well]
-Disable crossfire
-Safe mode, still got stuck
-Memtest, got stuck if I had the 4GB on, ran OK if done separately 2GB first, the other 2 later..
-Prime, ran a torture test, and ran fine for almost an hour..!


What is frustrating here is the randomness, I can't relate the freeze to anything..

After a second CMOS battery reset, the PC would freeze on BOOT, BIOS, or OS [if it makes it]..
I tested with one dim of memory, then the other, same deal..

Narrowed it to CPU, MB, PSU..
