Sometimes life is... intresting. Currently it's way too intresting with my rig. I had a CPU and motherboard from a friend as a birthday gift and Serg008 kindly provided SLIC'ed BIOS for me. I planned to put those in good use when suitable free time was available, but I lucked out as usual. My main rig went belly up. Froze hard and never gave any signs of life afterwards. But for once, I had everything ready... only I forgot Muphy's law. Now, nearly a week later, I rank this rig somewhere in top 3 most difficult, if not #1 on that list. Most of the kinks are gone now, but still the rig is not 100% stable. That is, random freezes are happening and hard reset is needed. That's not the way to keep your data safe. I'm going to run longer set of memory tests and perhaps try another PSU (750W crappy CoolerMaster) if I find it. Other than that, I'm fresh out of ideas. Perhaps someone could share few good ones? Oh, almost forgot. In case anyone have some deep insight about these, here are the components used: CPU: AMD FX 8320 Memory: 2*4GB A-Data (Generic) DDR3 GFX: EVGA GeForce GTX 460 1024MB EE MB: AsRock 990FX Extreme3 PSU: XFX 550W Core Edition ATX, 80+ (Bronze?) SSD: PNY 120GB XLR8 HDD: Samsung 2TB (and a few smaller Seagates) ODD: Optiarc DVD RW AD-5260S All drives are SATA devices. Everything packed almost neatly in "El Cheapo" BitFenix Merc Alpha case.
