    Default FX990 extreme9 Random Freezes

    Hello-
    I just finished reading a post on Tom's about X79 extreme9 random freezes dating back to 2012. I'm wondering if folks are still getting them. They seem similar to my FX990 issues.

    I've been getting them on occasion, maybe 1 every 3 to 4 days. It seems to happen mostly when streaming video through Chrome, though it has happened under other circumstances too.

    I've run the regular fixes and checks like Memtest, reviewed events in Win7, disabled bios stuff like aggressive power management / check ready bit, etc.

    Has anyone with a similar setup experienced these freezes too? It's not a BSOD....just a complete freeze... reminds me of when guru mediations failed back in AmigaOS 2.01 days.

    ...Well, it looks like the culprit might actually by my R290x. I've been reading about hardware accelerated applications causing crashes when the card is in a power-saving mode... quien sabe?

    Glad you've figured it out. I've had no freezing issues (knock on wood).
