The big, massive, pain staking issue started here- Ok I'll admit it, I purchased a rig from a website- cyberpowerpc.com was the one i chose, biggest mistake i've ever made, I wanted to build it myself but I knew I wouldnt be able to that year due to work and other things I was going through at the time. So my bad judgement took over, And I bought it, here are the specs, and the issues with each part that has one-
Firstly, this can of **** crashes like every hour, and resets itself randomly. It makes a very distinct buzzing noise in my headphones when it crashes, and doesnt stop until I pull the plug.
i7 @ 3.4ghz ( IT CLOCKS ITSELF, WIERD AS ANYTHING ) It says right now its at like 3.9 hz and I havent touched it, then when I look at the advanced settings of easytune6 its constantly changing itself constantly the GH'z and BLCK are literally bouncing all over the place. I dont understand it at all.
Palit sonic 560 Ti graphics card- I dont think theres anything wrong here, but in order to prevent my computer from crashing every hour I have to UNDERCLOCK the core/shader/memory clocks by 20% mhz on vtune. Why? I have no idea but apparently it stabilizes the issue.
RAM two sticks of 4g ddr3 kingston- Could be the source of all this evil, I need to run memcheck but Im too dumb to know how.
PSU- 650 hz corsair bronze enthusiast series
Mobo- Gigabyte z77 D3H
Monitor- 21" asus
Case- Inwin dragonrider w/ 3 side fans
Now incase its TLDR, heres a list of the issues and what I've done to troubleshoot
-Crashes after 1hour or so of gaming
-Ends up performing like a toaster and not a high end comp
-Slow and awkward startup
THINGS I HAVE DONE TO TROUBLESHOOT THESE PROBLEMS
-replace mobo, update bios
-replace video card
-Clean install of all drivers
-Facepalmed over 9000 times.
If you cant tell from context, I've gone through hell and back to try and turn this thing into what it should be, I know I screwed up by purchasing from where I did, but its not about that, Please help me pick up the pieces.
I may post video links later if I get the time to film the actual crashing/distortion and such but If you have ANY info or idea's to contribute please....help. Its gotten to the point where Im contemplating just tossing it, facepalming, and giving up and I really dont want that to happen so PLEASE help a brother out.
