FubarJeb Posted November 28, 2013 Share Posted November 28, 2013 Hello everyone, I have a new computer build and I'm having some issues with it. I understand that the XMP timings for my RAM is too much for my CPU to handle even though my motherboard supports it. In addition I'm using the latest BIOS for my motherboard and latest drivers for my hardware. However, I'm not sure what timings I should use to have a stable gaming platform. I would appreciate any feedback or advice to help me come up with a solution. Here is my current problem. Problem 1: Windows 7 crashes after about 10-15mins when I use two or four sticks of ram in my PC and set the Ai Overclock Tuner setting in the BIOS to XMP. Problem 2: Windows 7 crashes while in a game for about 10 to 15 mins when I use all four sticks of ram in my PC and set the Ai Overclock Tuner setting in the BIOS to Manual /Auto. Current Status: Windows 7 doesn't crash (as much) when I use two sticks of ram and set the Ai Overclock Tuner setting in the BIOS to manual. *NOTE* I did run Memtest86+ with all four sticks of RAM for about 21hours straight and had no errors. Although, I do have another issue where my System won't keep the correct time after a few mins. of being on.
