Random freezes?!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello!

My problem persists in that my computer has totally random freezes (almost like bluescreen, but I have to restart manually)


Before I had watercooling with q9550, evga 790i mb etc. and it did these random freezes.


Now I have sandy bridge (Totally new CPU,MB,Memory) and it still does it!


My bet is that its the HDD, when it comes to a certain "point" where it makes a error and then freeze? OR can it be the GFX? It's totally random but usually does it when I game. (I tried "underclocking" gfx but did nothing)


I've ordered a WD Black 1TB I will install with sata 6gb/s.


GFX: A 460 that is completely new and the other one is used (half a year old or something) It's both EVGA 786mb superclocked 460 cards. They're in SLI.

but its not MB/CPU/Memory thats for sure. And not because its OC'ed (the q9550 wasn't for a time and it still did it) my i5 2500k is stable as a rock. I've ran p95 small ftts for 8 hours without more than 60c and nothing wrong. I will run 3DMark11 to ensure more that its stable.



Anything I can do or you got a bet on whats wrong? I will install OS and games on the black HDD and just use the other one for everything else, maybe that helps?

I'd guess it's the hard drive. I've had this happen to me in the past a few times.

Download Western Digital's LifeGuard diagnostic program, install it, and run the Extended Test.

You can also download HDTune to view the S.M.A.R.T. data.
