Random sound stuttering freezes

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hello all, i've come into a slight problem, i think it could be ram related. my pc has frozen 3 times already, once in Fallout 3, 2 times with light tasks such as downloading files and listening to music, with a stuttering sound sort of. the only way to recover from it is to hard reset. i am running 4x1 Reaper 1066 @ 5-5-5-16 @2.1v. TRAS was 15 but i loosened to 16 just to sort of test it. now these freezes happen at the most random times. some insight would help if i should increase my NB voltage, loosen timings, or whatever. 2 questions, when does one need to raise the NB voltage? and how hot should the NB and SB heatsinks be?
thanks

Has the RAM been tested for stability? Run memtest, and Prime/Orthos. You shouldn't need much more than 1.3v on the NB.

Post the settings that you have in the bios, it might be something simple like the PCI freq.

Using onboard audio?

Update all your drivers?

Could disable the audio in the BIOS just in case it's an IRQ conflict, although with onboard audio I kind of doubt it.

highly doubt its irq's conflicting, as i only have one pci card installed, a tv tuner...
well, i've gotten some help from Ryder at ocz forums
he told me:

"With 4 sticks, try Tras at 18.
Raise the MCH voltage by +0.1V as well with 4 sticks.
Try less voltage on the ram.. 2.0V."
i did what he suggested, so far so good, and i've mounted a small 40mm fan on my NB


if problems arise, ill try what someone mentioned here, increashing mch to 1.3v, now its at 1.126v
ill report back if problems arise, as well as at ocz forums.
