WoW and other 3D games "blink" or "freeze"


Recommended Posts

Just built a new rig, everything works as hoped except WoW and other video intensive 3D games. During gameplay, screen will go blank for a few seconds without freezing, or system will freeze for a minute and then resume. EVGA tech support claims video card isn't the cause, mabey the memory timing or voltage... any suggestions?


All BIOS settings are at AUTO or Default.

Download Memtest from http://www.memtest.org. Burn the ISO image to CD.


Enter your BIOS and set:


Multiplier = 9

FSB = 333

DRAM = Unlinked and set to 1066Mhz


Memory Timing


FSB - Memory Clock Mode: Unlinked

CPU FSB: 333

CPU Multi: 9

DDR FSB: 1066

tCL: 5

tRCD: 5

tRP: 5

tRAS: 15



Vcore = Auto

Vdimm (DRAM Voltage) = 2.2v (For Version 1.xx) or 2.1v (For Version 2.xx)

Termination Voltage = Auto

1.2v HT: Auto

NB Vcore: Auto

SB Vcore: Auto



Boot to the Memtest CD and allow for two full passes.
