New Build. Freezing. 5 times today...

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
I just built a new computer. Here are the specs.

Asus Crosshair V Formula
AMD FX-8150
8Gb Ripsaw 1600. 4gb sticks.
Crucial C300 (From old computer)
Zotac GeForce 440 (From old computer)
Cooler Master 212 CPU heatsink
500W Power supply. Came with case (New Corsair 750 coming on Monday)

It is OCed by default by the motherboard. The CPU is OCed by 9% and running at 3913.3Mhz. Multiplier at 19.5x

CPU VID: 1.4125
North Bridge VID: 1.1750

I stress tested my 8150 yesterday with Prime95 for 2 hours with blend. The CPU only ever got up to 55 degrees C. It didn't freeze once and passed all tests.


Today it has frozen 4 times. Once watching a movie, once installing winamp and not sure about when the others happened.


When it freezes it just becomes unresponsive. The screens remain normal but the mouse won't move and keyboard does nothing. When it froze on the movie the audio froze with it, repeating the same 1/10th of a second over and over.

Where do I need to start testing, how do I test it and with what? I need to figure out what the problem is fast so I can RMA the problematic part (unless it's my video card, I have a new 480 GTX coming in on Monday.)

Update: It just froze again. Rebooted and went into bios. Core C6 was enabled. I disabled and rebooted. We will see if it helps at all. The CPU was running at 34 degrees when it froze this last time.

Update2: The motherboard is OCing by default. Details updated in original post.

Is your OS a fresh install?

Weird question, but just doing the basics first.

Cooler mounted correctly?

Checked to see if all fans are running?

Drivers all new and up to date?

Fresh install.
Cooler must be correct, running at mid 30s while idle.
All fans are running.
Drivers are up to date.

I am going to reboot now to test my SSD.

Do you have it set to write the mini dump on a crash? Check in System Propeties, Advanced tab, start up and recovery and check the box "Write an event to the system log". Apply and then it will start doing next time it crashes. I also like to check the box "Automatically Restart" also. What about your chipset drivers? Thanks

Both those boxes are checked.
My chipset drivers are up to date. Just installed the latest and greatest when I build this PC 2 days ago.
