  1. ok my specs are 790i ultra,Q9300,4gb patriot ddr3, 750 corsair 75 amps. pny 9600gt

    now i problem is that randomly the whole pc freezes and horrid noise comes out of the speakers. the ram is good because when i first made this i had returned the original that was horribly bad. the HDD is brand new 320gig. not overheating everything is in 30 c's mini typhoon on the cpu.

    That's what I have been getting too also on a new PC. I was told it's the power supply o-o;

    The lowest voltage on my motherboard is 1.80. I was having problems at anything lower than 1.95. It's been fine so far since.

    Jennzie, if the mem. is rated at more it does not hurt to go up from there. I am running at 2.20 but that is what it asks for although it will run at 1.80.

    It's OCZ DD2 PC6400 Platinum Revision 2 2GB Kit. It's default voltage is, 1.9. I had it lower than that. I'm guessing that was the problem.
