Windows 7 64bit Freezes when idle

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello i am having a problem with my pc freezing only when left idle overnight (i stream off it to my bedroom so i leave it on) . If i leave a game running on it like torchlight 2 and come back in the morning it is fine. I have to reset the computer for eveything to come back.

System specs.
Case: Cooler Master Haf X
SSD: Intel 520 Series 120GB
HDD: 4 Western Digital Black 1 TB
CPU: AMD Bulldozer FX-8150
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X 16GB 1600Mhz
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX670 FTW
MB: Asus Crosshair V
PSU: Corsair AX1200W
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100
FC: NZXT Sentry 2


I have tried running memtest all night it passed
i change the memory to and new 16 gb gskill kit still does it
i have change my ssd for the working hdd from my other comp still does it
reformatted and installed window 3 times still does it
swapped my gtx 670 ftw for the working gtx 570 from my other comp still does it
unplugged all my storage drives still does it
changed all sata cables for all my drives still does it
ran sfc scan passed
bumped up my vvcore to 1.40v and ran it at stock frequency
ran at auto vcore
bumped up my ram vcore to 1.52
i have also checked the event viewer and there is nothing but windows fail to shutdown properly when it freezes on idle

the only things i have left to check are my psu,mobo ,and cpu.

I am feeling it is the psu but i guess it could be the mobo anyone have anything thoughts on this?

Here is hwmonitor screen for everything at auto/stock settings. thanks for taking to time to at least look at this.
I am trying to basically figure out if it is my mobo or psu because in 4 weeks after a couple more Paychecks i am getting a maximus V and a 3770k and i hope it doesn't keep doing with this psu.

The only thing I can think of is maybe the CPU's core voltage is too low while it's idling.

Yah i have tried bumped the vcore to 1.40 at stock frequency i dunno maybe a year of running 24/7 @ 4.8 ghz 1.45vcore is starting to kill my cpu i just hope its not my psu because its the only thing other than my gtx 670 that I'm not replacing in 4 weeks.

Well, it's just that this is reminding me of my system:  about a year ago, I switched to settings that allowed the voltage to dip way down when it's idling, but then I had random lock-ups when my system was idling (and even while under a very light load).  After asking OCN for help, I learned that I had to make some adjustments so that the idle voltage didn't dip down quite as low, and then everything was fine.

What were these adjustments? I've been having this problem since I built my rig last October. Nothing is overheating. Memtest passes with flying colors and so does any stresstest/ bench I throw at my CPU & GPU.

I had to disable C3 and C6, but I don't know if you have these in an AMD system.

Besides, I've come a long way since then. Today, I am using a lower LLC level and it allows me to keep C3 and C6 enabled. Another benefit of that is I get a lower power consumption while idling. Still, whenever you have problems under very light loads or while idling, one possible culprit is the voltage may be too low to support it.
