Freeze followed by pixel like crashing during gaming requiring restart 965BE - Page 2

post #11 of 16
It's RAM..check your RAM timings..maybe give some more CPU/NB
Also..Your PSU is underpowered to be even overclocking a Deneb and large GPU.
and..then there's your motherboard..I wouldn't allow that more than 1.38v to the CPU.
Find your motherboard on here and see what it says.

4+1 No 125W? Avoid for OC High VRM fail rate None Unknown 3 transistor 8-pin ATX It has nice capacitors at least

You can probably still get a 3.6 or so OC with reduced voltage.

Ok great thanks for the replies. I have a cx750m on the way for a rebuild in the future. I will back off the clock and just be happy with what I have. My gpu temp never goes over 55c and my cpu maxes at 53 during prime95. Also it is the 125w C3 which I think schmukley is getting at.

What would be a viable mobo? Honestly I am pretty unhappy with the current line up of AMD chipset boards considering PCIE3 isn't even offered as of yet. But if there is a newer/safer board available that isn't outrageous I'll try it. I tried to do my research but missed the mobo thing and this was my first custom built computer in 2011 so I'm trying here fellas.

EDIT: After looking at that it looks like pretty much anything besides MSI, I will check out some gigas and ASUS. Any recommendations though? And will this free up some decent head room for overclocking?

What aboout this one? I would buy one of the older ones but they are all out of stock so I assume a bit outdated. This looks like it meets the requirements, 8+2 VRM. I can't see if it is listed as "heat sinked" though or has the TDP of 140W. If I were to switch to a decent intel mobo and board what would some recommendations be? I would like to have something upgradable in the future and doesn't seem AMD has that to offer since no PCIE3 will be available anytime soon it looks. I don't have an outrageous amount to spend going top of the line on anything but rather get a board that is upgradable and I can OC without being in the danger zone or whatever I am doing now. Or I can stick to AMD if this gives me more headroom. Again guys and gals, appreciate all the help.

lots of pixelated colorful squares usually happens when the vram on your gpu is bad or being pushed too hard from what ive seen.

I totally understand why it would lead someone to believe that but would it happen with both a gtx 550ti and gtx 660 both at stock clocks? I switched them the other day and both have done it. I haven't touched gpu overclocking since I am yet to master CPU OC

Under normal circumstances, yes, I would point to a "GPU" problem as well, however, I believe you have adequately eliminated that as the likely culprit, having experienced the same failure mode with 2 different GPUs.

My recommendation would be to assess your CPU needs after pulling back your voltage/clocks and testing for stability. If the system runs everything well enough leave it alone for a few months and see what shapes up for the FM2+ and AM3+ sockets. We're still sort of in the dark about what will happen with AM3+.

PCIE 3.0 is not necessary at this time, and won't be within the scope of the useful life-cycle of any of the current AM3+ boards anyway (simply put, by the time 16X 3.0 speeds are necessary for GPUs, any DDR3 based system is likely to be too slow to make use of the GPU anyway). For proof.... consider the fact that in most high end dual GPU configurations on an Intel 1150 or 1155 socket system run at 8X8X 3.0 speeds due to the lack of PCIE lanes on that platform, which is about the same bandwidth as 16X16X 2.0 speeds found on an AM3+ platform. Neither configuration is a bottleneck for current flagship GPUs. In fact, under most test conditions, a PCIE 8X 2.0 connection (or "nearly equial" PCIE4X 3.0) is still fast enough not to cause any meaningful performance desegregation on today's flagship GPUs like the GTX780Ti.

The GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 would be a great choice if you need a quick "fix" that utilizes your current CPU. A Switch to that would probably get your ole Deneb running at or near 4ghz stable. Worst case scenario you have the option to upgrade to an FX-83XX and overclock that to 4.5ghz+ (though keep in mind, that in lightly threaded workloads, it won't really be much better than your Deneb, if at all). I think it's important to note though, that there is no guarantee that your "glitch" has been caused by the MOBO, it's just a good educated guess at this point.
Also keep in mind that a change of motherboard may come with some complication for Windows Licencing depending.
