  1. Please see my original thread on "My computer Freezes intermitently"

    UPDATE: I have been checking various things on the computer in an effort to solve this problem. I am using ASUS P5P800 MOBO with an Intel pentium D 2.80GHz processor. I recently checked the CRUCIAL memory module chart against my MOBO to see it's recommendation, and it showed Memory module (PC 3200 DDR) speed of 400MHz and above. Could the fact that I am using memory modules (PC 3200 DDR) of 200MHz speed be the cause of the freeze up? Is the memory module speed a factor?

    200MHz is your BUS speed, not your RAM Speed.

    PC3200 is PC3200, it's all rated at 400MHz - unless you are running a divider, your RAM will be double your BUS Speed.

    i.e 166MHz FSB = 333MHz

    200MHz FSB = 400MHz etc etc
