Is overclocking necessary - Page 3

post #21 of 51
To me this seems like a GPU problem. Whenever anything is loading the GPU's it's locking up. As said above, just try it with each card and see how it goes.

This could also be a ram issue, I've had ram issues before and this sounds familiar.

Make sure you put your ram in the correct sockets. Read your motherboard manual because if you only have a single set of ram they need to be in the correct ram slots to work properly.

The ram should only be in the A1 B1 C1 D1 slots (or whatever it is on your motherboard, you have to read the manual to find out.) So you would have 2 ram sticks on either side of the cpu in the correct slots.

Ok, good advice...

One stick of ram in the correct slot (D1 in my case)

One GPU

One monitor

Played BF3 for twenty minutes then the video locked. But not at a black screen . Lost my sensors when the system locked but the CPU is cool to the touch and the GPU is only warm to the touch.

Just to be sure, swap the ram and video card now and run it again.
Also, since this is your first build, you might have overlooked something, like the 12v 8pin connector near the CPU socket, check it, should look something like this.

Good point on the 8 pin since the Cosmos 2 requires an extension cable to reach the mother board.

Re seated the 8 pin connector at both ends.

Swapped the GPU for the second GPU. Left the same stick of ram in place.

Re tested.

One stick of Ram in D1 slot

One gpu (second one).

One monitor.

On youtube videos the system locks within 30 seconds.

restarted system.

Played BF for 20 min. no problems. GPU is 60 C CPUID does not give all info because of trial but CPU cores average45C

Went back to youtube video and system locked within 30 seconds.

Well, test another Ram slot, could be a bad one.

Aside from that, are all BIOS options on default? Might try a bios update to the latest one.

I'm going to first guess that your RAM is causing the lockups. I and others have had to change timing/speed on G-Skill with X79 setups, nobody seems to know why. Corsair RAM seems to have no problem.

My RAM is rated 8-9-9-24 2T @ 1866, but at those settings the system (this was at stock) had random bluescreens and instantly failed Prime95. I can run 1600 at 8-9-9-24 1T, or 1866 at 9-9-9-24 2T. I chose the 1866 version. You can also play with RAM voltage (I wanted to stay at 1.5V) and VCCSA etc, but read this guide:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1189242/sandy-bridge-e-overclocking-guide-walk-through-explanations-and-support-for-all-x79-overclockers

Take a good read through it, and look at the RAM section.

The D1 slot is the one recommended for one stick of Ram in the ASUS manual.

The BIOS settings are stock as supp;ied by the manufacturer.

IN In the UEFI BIOS Utility -EZ mode there are three settings options, Power saving
Normal
Performance
Mine is set on normal.

All other BIOS settings are stock or Default.

Retested

One stick of Ram in D1 slot (second stick of Ram

One GPU (second Card)

One monitor

Sytem lock within one minute on youtube video

Restart system

System lock at 13 minutes playing BF3

Do these tests indicate a BIOS update is required?

hmmm, i have the same set-up with a diff GC and a EVGA motherboard, and have never had any issues, try re-installing your graphics drivers (because it is an easy fix) and then try updating your bios. Also could you tell us the exact part number of your ram?
