Even today I'm finding myself remove the SSD until this gets sorted out (BIOS, drive issues.)
The hd4000 would be an issue during games. I expect crashes on this graphics too.
No mention of heatsink compound or if you build machines all the time.
I recently built a system, specs:
OCZ Agility 3 60gb ssd (OS)
500gb Hitachi deskstar
8gb (2x4gb) Kingston HyperX XMP 1600mhz cl9
running integrated hd4000 graphics at the moment
Hyper 212+ Cooler
CM690 II advanced case
Gigabyte z77-d3h motherboard
I keep getting random freezes, no BSOD the screen stays on but I can't move the mouse or interact and all sounds stop. I play games but it often happens when I'm not in games, I have checked CPU and HDD temps, HDD temps are fine and CPU temps are around 30 degrees. I can't imagine what is wrong with it, I have swapped RAM DIMM slots, changed SATA ports and everything. When I play counter strike global offensive if it crashes ingame I can see a message warning me of connection loss and the timer counting down from 30 works as does my FPS monitor and ping monitor. I did install Windows with a scratched disk, I used an anytime upgrade to change to Ultimate but this did not fix it. It happens at least once a day but some days it is worse than others. I have overclocked my CPU but even at default settings for my BIOS it happens. Can anyone think of what is wrong and a solution. Thanks everyone
