Cpu stress test freeze
Hello, having issues with stress testing and some games that have high cpu usage in the beginning. About 30 seconds into the CPU-Z stress test, the computer freezes, fans go max RPM, power to USB devices are cut (my corsair k70 goes dark). And the thing is, I'm not even custom overclocking it, it's on Intel turbo boost.
It locked up the comp from accessing bios when restarting, mashing delete did not work, went to windows and then it froze again and fans go up, etc... I had to shut down for 10 minutes before getting it to open windows without freezing.
This only happened after I updated bios and after that I changed the timing on my ram correctly along with the correct multipliers for 1600mhz.(they were at 1330mhz with incorrect timing).
Rig belonged to my pops for a few years for cad drawings and 3d rendering.
Ram, ballistix sport ddr3 16gb (2 8g sticks kit)
I'll post specific specs when I get home, just wanted to start to see if this is a general problem related to changes to the ram or updating the bios.
I get the it's a power issue, maybe the Intel boost is doing something wrong.
Or could be a ram issue locking up, not letting me go into bios... Does the CPU-Z stress test even test ram first minute in? '); }
