Heres what i have
Mother Board - Asus P9x79
CPU - Core i7-3820
GFX - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti WF2 2GB
HDD - Intel SSD-520 SATA3 120G
now after i put it all together i wanted to test it out so i fired up some games, but after any where between 2 and 40 mins the game would freeze, not just freeze the game, the whole PC just froze, there was nothing i could do, no ALT + F4 or CTRL + ALT + DEL nothig worked, i had o force a restart.
I only have 2 games on hand atm
(these were games i had backed up on an external HDD so was quick to copy them across instead of re downloading them cause i have pretty slow internet when it comes to big downloads) (listed below) and they both freeze, i was thinking about buying something super new like borderlands 2 or something but i have a feeling it will have the same result, so ill see what i can find out before i go spend mroe money
- Torchlight 2
- World of Warcraft
I have all upto date drivers and the usual stuff.
Now when i went and bought the parts i wanted, the guy at the shop (who in the past have never done wrong by me) told me my RAM would work for the new Mother Board, now tonight we figured out the RAM isnt compatible so im going to replace it tomorrow and see if it helps, even if it doesnt help with the problem im having, its gotta at least be better for the Mother Board lol.
so i guess my question is does any one have any tips about this
and does any one know if having the wrong RAM (even tho the computer recognises that its all there) culd it still cause the issue im having.
another quest i have is, the RAM im looking at getting is
- DDR3-1600 16GB (4x4GB)
MY Mother Board has 8 slots in it, 4 either side of the CPU and they are labeled as follows:
DIMM A1 A2 B1 B2 << CPU HERE >> DIMM D2 D1 C2 C1
so my question is, if i buy 4x4GB of RAM which 4 slots do i use, i have tried to google it and have found some people said to use:
A1 A2 B1 B2
and another thing i read said to use
A1 A2 C1 C2
any help would be so totally awesome
if any more info is required i will check the forums from my phone and post if i can with out being at my PC
