Freezing issue with MSI P55-GD65

Hi. I have been experiencing freezing issues since the day i've built this machine (yesterday). The first time was when i left it idle for 20 minutes, came back to it and it was frozen. the second time was when i was running a stress test, stopped the test and when returning to idle it froze.

 

I have read some places about issues with 4 sticks of ram on P55 mb's and/or i5/i7-8XX.

 

Most BIOS settings were default except disabled splash screen and changed boot order, turboboost disabled.

RAM was running at 1333mhz with the right timings (9-9-9-24), RAM voltage was set to auto (1.5V), command rate at the default (2T).

 

I think this may be a memory issue but i'm not sure, because i checked the SPD information and 3 of the sticks say the part number is CMX8GX3M4A1333C9 which is correct but 1 stick has the part number CM3X2G1333C9

 

Could this be an issue with the memory kit/not matched up right and could that explain the freezing? I have looked at all 4 sticks at they are all marked as being CMX8GX3M4A1333C9

 

Thanks for any help. I have also posted CPU-Z screenshots below.

Hi. Any ideas on this?

It looks like the system is restarting itself aswell. I came back to it tonight to see if it had frozen, typed in my password and to my surprise the system logged on instead of unlocking.

 

I've checked my event logs and it looks like the system has restarted itself twice. (once at 11pm on sunday night and at 10am monday morning). I don't think it blue screened as i disabled automatic restart on BSOD.

 

All it says in the event log is "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly." and in details i get

 

- EventData

 

BugcheckCode 0

BugcheckParameter1 0x0

BugcheckParameter2 0x0

BugcheckParameter3 0x0

BugcheckParameter4 0x0

SleepInProgress false

PowerButtonTimestamp 0

 

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated!

 

Especially if the RAM could be at fault (and the issue with different part number in the SPD info?) Thanks.

hello,

 

i think the codes 0 means windows has no idear on what happened thats why the code is 0 (i read that in some forum, a guy was angry cos if windows report code 0 he can not debug whats going wrong because windows dosent even know lol)

 

i had exactly the same problems with the 1600mhz xm3 kits could not resolve the issue unless i set in bios the imc to 1.25volts , i ended up replace'n kits with different brand and that brand sets my imc to 1.25volts i have not had 1 issue since and system has been left running for nearly 3days with out any issues. you may just have the same problem i had ..

Hi.

 

Well i got my RAM swapped for another set of CMX8GX3M4A1333C9

 

First boot to windows (i ran Memtest 86+ first) and it froze straight away. Also getting random reboots still.

 

Does the P55/i7-8XX setup really work with 4 sticks of RAM? could there be a compatability issue with this RAM and the MSI motherboard or could i have a faulty CPU?

 

stevenicks: i have no imc voltage option in the BIOS.

The only voltage options i have are

CPU Voltage

CPU_VTT Voltage

PCH_1.8V

DRAM Voltage

DDR_VREF_CA_A

DDR_VREF_CA_B

DDR_VREF_DA_A

DDR_VREF_DA_B

PCH Voltage

 

Shouldnt the system be able to run fine with defaulted BIOS and all the settings at default? The fact that it doesnt means there must be something wrong surely...

yeah they should although i did have a rite old moan on this site about the ram problems i was having (also lots of other people) in the end i replaced for a different brand (company) they worked out of the box auto settings or xmp settings.. but these problems withh ddr3 are not just limited to corsair ram i also read other companys ram people are haveing issues with , funny thing is i also read that the brand of ram i have works fine for about 4-6 months then it starts to fail lol well i guess i'll find out in 4-6 months although that said i have used that brand of ram(cant say companys name on this site) for years in the past with no problems ..
