Windows Freezes and now has started occasional BSoD

  1. I have just bought a new system with 2x200gb Diamond Max plus 9's in a RAID array and it has been unstable from the word go. When I looked at the temperatures I found out that the disks are running at 56degrees!

    To check if this was causing the problems I ran the system with the disks out side the case with a fan heater, (set to blow cold air btw :haha: ) and it's ran sweet as for a few days.

    Now however I have discovered further problems. Even once my hard drives are nice and cool my system continues to periodically freeze and occasionally but rarely it will reset or give a BSoD with an error about IRQ greater than or equal to something or other.

    I have run memtest86 for a whole day, (26 passes!) and no errors were found. I am running out of ideas here – nothing else is running hot, the memory is fine – no spyware or viruses present – Drivers up to date.

    Help! :(

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    If that doesn`t help. Zip 5 or 6 minidumps together and attach them here.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    The RAID array - did you set it up according to the MOBO specs? I actually don't think it's due to those hard disks.
