eroth Posted October 28, 2005 Share Posted October 28, 2005 Hi there, over the last 2 weeks, i've been getting sporadic problems with the pc freezing or restarting, but it's gotten to the point where 4 hours of uptime is a lucky break and I'm super frustrated. First my setup: p4 3.2c Asus P4C800-E Deluxe 2x Corsair CMX3200512-3200C2 PSU is a BeQuiet 450W I am running at relatively stock settings...FSB is 200, timings are 2-3-3-7 and ddr voltage bumped up to 2.75. Heat is no problem, as i'm watercooled and lucky for the CPU to get above 56° (water temp relatively constant at 37°). So last evening i went ahead with memtest86 and had some strange results. (All test with only 1 stick on the board.) First, with the RAM in the A1 slot, 1 pass, no trouble. 2nd, other stick in B1 slot, test 6 blew up with 10's of thousands of errors. 3rd, original stick from A1 in B1, same result as 2nd test. 4th, original stick from B1 in A1, no errors after 2 passes. So i booted up with only 1 stick in the A1 slot, and it froze again after 4 hours. I would like to think that the RAM is ok and that the board is somehow defect. Is this possible? Is it possible that I have a power problem, even though this PSU is a relatively good one (considering it's over a year old)? Could anything else be the culprit? I'm prone to replace whatever is hurting me, but i don't like giving out 100€ for a new P4P800 (new P4C's can't be found anymore here in DE it seems), when i could jump up to a new AMD64 system or so for about 500€. Any suggestions would be a great help? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
