Stability Issues, any thoughts?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is where this goes, could a moderator please move if it's innapropriate smile.gif

ASRock z77 extreme 4
i5 3570k
16GB Ripjaws X ddr3 1600
powercolor PCS+ 7870
128gb vertex 4 for a boot drive
windows 7 enterprise
Hyper 212 cooler

It'll run anywhere from 30 seconds to 8+ hours, but eventually it will slowly lock up and crash. By slowly I mean the USB mouse goes first, then about 3 or 4 seconds later the keyboard goes (I know this because I have time to get into the task manager). Then it totally locks. A few times I've gotten to some kind of "detecting security settings" or something where the mouse icon spins for about a minute and then it crashes.

Tried:
Manually setting the CPU voltage to everywhere from 1 to 1.2
Removing the Intel Rapid Storage drivers
reseating RAM/GPU/check loose power connections
Right now Im testing both sticks of RAM individually in each mobo slot (both passed windows memory test).

To clarify, there is NO loss of function, right up until it dies. I played Bioshock Infinity on ultra settings last night for about 6 hours straight, and it didn't die until I was derping around on the internet afterwards.

CPU-Z has my core temps anywhere from about 32 to 60 while gaming. Gonna post this before it dies on me again, will edit if needed.

Sounds like a memory leak.
Keep task manager open. Click the word Memory at the top of the Processes column to arrange the process by memory usage. See if one keeps growing.

Have you checked Event Viewer?

I have, and had my roomie who is in IT look at it to see if I was missing anything. No events other than the reboot after bad shutdown.

Edit: I've read that sometimes this particular RAM has compatibility issues with this board. Is this how that would manifest?

Go to windows event viewer and check what kind of errors youve got there itll tell you what is failing.

It's not creating an event. The only thing that shows up is the boot afterwards.
post #6 of 11
Check administrative events, there should be lots of different errors there. My PC doesnt crash and i almost have 3K hits there.

There are entries, but nothing related. I posted the event viewer right up there.

As an update, I swapped RAM out to the same spec/speed corsair vengeance. It STILL has issues, but they aren't as pronounced. Instead of freezing over a period of 5 seconds, open programs stop responding, then menus stop working, and finally the mouse and keyboard. I've messed with the timings, set v to 1.5, tried it at auto, adjusted CLL to 2 and 3, It still hangs up eventually. It's odd, because I just finished playing Tribes Ascend for 30 mins or so. You would think if anything were going to happen, it would be while gaming, not sitting at idle or derping with firefox. I am puzzled.

Next update!

Fresh install.
Latest drivers for everything. Found a newer version of realtek drivers than I was using previously.
Most recent BIOS.
Checked and rechecked all cables and connections. Reseated both ram and GPU.
Found some manually downloaded (one I had to get an email link for?) hotfixes for windows.
Swapped out G.skill ram for equivalent corsair vengeance. Love newegg's no hassle RMA.

So far stable for almost 3 hours. Fingers crossed.

You should have gone for G.Skill RAM modules again, Corsair vengeances won't OC as well because vengeances uses tightly binned chips and are generally not worth it over G.Skill.
