Since day 1 of my build I seem to have issues with OC. I posted in the forums awhile back and didn't get to far.
I have since then not oc'd my system at all. I can test all hardware and tests are good. I can wipe my HDD re install everything and still get random freezing and have to force reboot or like as of late i get glitches in os. I have like in background 12 images setup to rotate and they sometimes ghost each other overlapping like both are present at same time,
Also if I run any type of registry cleaning software whole system will lock up causing force reboot
I have made sure all drivers and windows updates are up to date and begin to wonder if hardware was never good from the beginning. My ram I am not sure if fully compatible with the MOBO BUT i seen some say it is.
I really need any help I can get I had my previous build last me 7 years with not half the specs of this system and it still runs to date without any issues.
I am currently running windows 8 64 bit as well. I have Govt issued symantec endpoint protection running and no other crap on it but games and some basic software applications.
Any advice on hardware or how I might need to setup Bios. Please dont refer me to the crosshair v formula z and 8150 OC guide. I simply dont get from it enough to oc my rig. I feel there is something missing or perhaps I am too much of a noob and got lucky on my first build.
Ty again for any quick responses
