Unstable after 6 months?

485 9
So I began running my rig at 2.75ghz all the time around mid june, shortly after I built it. Then it primed fine all night, and have been running it at those settings since.

I began to get some weird crashes lately and decided to run prime to make sure my overclock was ok.

It gets errors after about an hour in!


Any idea why this would happen?

edit- I think updating my BIOS might have changed some ram settings, since it runs fine at stock speeds...

Hmmm....tests your components individually. Run memtest, then slap on a big divider and test your cpu. Also, it 'could possibly' be your power supply starting to go. I can't even run all the components in my sig w/o a few of the fans and lights unplugged. Btw, which bios did you upgrade to?

The most recent 623-3.

I have been running prime for almost three hours now with my RAM on a divider, which seems to support my thinking that the new BIOS changed the ram settings.

Ah no, didnt think of that, I will do that tomarrow, in the mean time I'm still playing with my RAM settings trying to get them to what they were before.

I gather your RAM in the Orange slots.
All settings must be reset when you update a BIOS so I don't understand what you were saying about the timings changing... everything would have.
