After the first one went I dropped the bclk to 100.. and Ive been having problems.
It manly happens while watching video on windows media.. The first time (on the new hdd) my computer almost crashed (I was folding as well) the sounds got distorted and then files on the "E" drive which is the HDD couldnt be found, the drive was even gone from my computer, but came back after a reboot.. I then switched out the cable, did a CMOS reset, and I am running default default settings.. While only watching a video last night the sound started distorted again and the computer seemed glitchy.. So I am assuming the problem still exists..
Im thinking its the recently RMA'd mobo they just sent me.. But there trying to blame the power supply.. Its a Corsair AX850 psu and the SDD is on the same power line so if it wasnt supplying enough Amps.. The whole computer would crash.. not just anything on my "e" drive..
I have to boot in Ubuntu and try to run memtests.. where is that located on ubuntu? Never memtest with ubuntu before..
Other than it being RAM.. I hope to get my hands on a 680 video card tomorrow or friday and then after that do a full system reformat and dl all new drivers.. That should eliminate most of the possible problems.guyladouche
: Theres a possibily theres corruption on my sdd I guess even tho cmd prompt chkdsk is showing 0 kb damage.. I guess I dont really know.. But right now the "e" drive is reformated and I am running 100% stock and while watching a torrented video the sound started distorting and the computer began to lag and after I stopped the video, utorrent reported the file I JUST downloaded to be missing.. I dont know how to explain that.. It came back with a reboot and I finished watching it.
Oh man, even bone stock? I see. In that case, I would agree it's probably the motherboard.
Any chance of RMA for a second time? You sure they didn't bamboozle you, and send back the exact same board you sent in?
I can't imagine it's the PSU and ONLY causing problems with the drives. Have you stress-tested the CPU + RAM? I'd be willing to bet if you don't see issues at stock load, then it's not a PSU issue.
