  • Computer Crashes.

    Hi. I have an Evga 750i FTW motherboard, running with an intel Q9450 2.66 ghz processor. I am using the G.Skill DDR2 1066 2 x 2gig sticks purchased here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231166. My computer will load and boot perfectly fine (running windows vista ultimate 64 bit), but after 30-60 minutes it will crash. By crash I mean it will turn off. No warning, error, or blue screen of death, it will just instantly power off. If the computer goes under a heavier load, intense gaming or stress testing, it will crash. I have tried chaning the slots, using only one stick of ram at a time and putting it in different slots, alternated betweent he two. All to no avail. Using a live cd of Ubuntu i used the memory test optioin, which is a version of prime95 to test the ram. I will get to the 3rd test and then it will crash, about a minute and 30 seconds in. I have lowered the timmings from the 1066 all the way to 800 and the same issue arises every time. Please help me.

    if this problem happens even on DDR2 800, it might not relate to memory.

      Thank, but I found the issue. My Q9450 was overheating, the stock cooler that came with it is no where near powerful enough. I was hitting 110 c and then crashing. For now i just disabled 2 cores and that has made my system stable until i can buy a new cooler. Thanks for your help though.
