For a bit now, my computer will just randomly freeze and just wont respond. What ever was on the screen at that time stays there and there is no way to do anything else but turn off the computer. Task Manager wont work, nothing. Can't even move the mouse. Also, when there is sound playing at the time of the freeze, the very last part of the sound just freezes and loops. So if my computer froze while playing a game and my guy was saying "That" and got to the end of the word, the output from the speakers would be, "tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt" but just with more attitude. I am not sure that if that is what the sound actually is when it freezes while there is sound, but there is no sound when the computer freezes if there was no sound.
My GPU was Overclocked but now it is not. It is all at stock. Now on the other hand, my CPU is Overclocked but I have never had a problem with it before. It is an i7 960 clocked to 4GHz. The ram is 12GB of Kingston HyperX t1 PC3-12800 at 1604MHz because of the ratio. What I noticed that the Voltage is at 1.48215. I saw this number beside QPI/DRAM and assumed that it was the voltage. I have it all set to be automatically set.
The GPU is a XFX AMD Radeon HD 6950 2GB Version. For cooling the CPU I have a Crosair H50 with 2 fans that blow almost 100CFM each. I also have 3 other ones in the case as well. 2 on the front, and one on the side. I then have a 200mm BigBoy fan on the top for exhaust. The rest are all intake. Mobo is an Asus Sabertooth x58. Power supply is Thermaltake TR2 750W. OS Windows 7 Ultimate x64. HDD, 1 300GB Velocirapter 10K RPM for OS then a Seagate 1TB 7200RM for everything else.
I have ran Prime95 and it passed. I then used MEMTEST86 and it passed. Only ran the test once. All drivers are up to date but windows isn't totally. The step that I am on right now is deleting all temp files, fixing registry errors and entries and then going to defrag my HDD. I have a feeling that I am missing something. If I am, I will post it up when it comes to me.
Does anyone know a problem by just reading my problems above?
