Qassman Posted December 2, 2010 Share Posted December 2, 2010 Hi I bought the setup from PC Case Gear about up 10 months ago, and since then have gone through hell with it. The first RAM set I got was the CMG6GX3M3A2000C8. This happened to be faulty and Memtest+ detectied this. I returned this, only to find out that they no longer had the CMG6GX3M3A2000C8, so Corsair sent me the CMT6GX3M3A2000C8. It also happened to be faulty so I sent it back. I got the replacement and that also seemed to fail so I sent the motherboard and the RAM back. ASUS replaced the motherboard and advised that the new ram and the motherboard were possibly incompatible. The system is not stable and is exibiting very strange and intermitent lock ups. The strange things are: 1. The board and RAM won´t go to 2000Mhz RAM with XMP, even though that´s what ASUS and recommend to do and is supposed to work (ASUS have checked out the board and replaced it as well in good faith) 2. I have to set it to 1800 to post and i still have the intermitent freezes. 3. Memtest runs fine and doesn´t find any issues in multiple passes, and Prime 95 can run for 20 hours with no issues sometimes, and simetimes it freezes the computer in a few minutes. 4. The computer freezes randomly during gameplay, at windows bootup, never at the same times or temperature, sometimes just by idling. 5. The System and App loggs don´t show anything out of the ordinary. 6. A way to crash it that seems to work 99% of the time is to run PC Mark 64 bit (benchmark software), and run all the tests. This usually crashes the PC everytime (at different points). tried with other videocards with same results. Is anyone able to tell me if there are known compatibillity issues and if so, if there are any workarounds? I understand how hard it is to troubleshoot an intermittent issue like this, so I appreciate your help. Please understand that its very frustrated since it´s been a while since this computer has been running. Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
