    Default EP43-S3L random freezes

    Hi. Replaced mobo, and cpu now i have some random freezes in windows and it allways freezes in games like tf2, warcraft3, althou it runs smoothly in counterstrike 1.6 which is opengl game and less cpu intense. Im sure its not cooling nor gpu issue.
    some info on system CPU-Z Validator 3.1

    Try some test programs, check the RAM with the WIndows Memory Diagnosis tool or memtest, run Prime 95, use the "Scan for Artifacts" feature from ATI Tool and tell us any errors you encounter.

    Have you changed anything in BIOS or do you run on optimized defaults?

    Everything is stock and set to default. Ati tray tools shows there is no artifacts. As soon as ill get any kind of disk or flopy device ill try to run memtest. Mainly freezes appears only under heavy loads, how can i disable cpu throttling?

    You can run memtest from CD or Bootable USB Stick, if you need help in doing that let us know.

    Are you setting your own ram voltages? Can you please post your full specs so we can better advise?

    CPU Throttling only happens when you reach extreme temps, which you should not be if you are at stock unless you do not have your cooler installed properly.

    I would guess you likely have 4GB of ram, and have not adjusted your MCH or ram voltages yet right? If so this could be the issue, please post your full specs and any more info you can

    I think by throttling he means speedstep and if you shouldn't change that. Speedstep lower the multiplier when the CPU is under no load/light load and also lowers the CPU voltage saving energy. There's no need to turn it off, the CPU will always be running at full speed when you need it :)

    So im back and i've done some research

    Some tests was OK, some froze my system
    I found out that by using only one memory module there is less chance to freeze up allthou freezes still appea frequently under heavy load.

    So i tried memtest and its allways freezing around Test #3 or #4 whatever the ram configuration is.

    So its definitely board or bios settings, what settings i can try to improve stability?
    With only one module of memory system can run even for weak.

    Your system specs including a link to memory specs(manufacturer site prefered) in your signature would help us to help you.
    Please load optimized defaults, if you have not yet, and apply any changes you made so far.
    Use the template in this post to post your BIOS settings. Delete settings that are not valid for your board.
    A screen capture of MemSet main and spd(click spd) windows and EasyTune adnace voltage tab would also be for a help.

    You can download MemSet from http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/late...30/#post284762
