- GTX 970
- 4GB (x2) Mushkin Blackline Frostbyte 1600 MHz DDR3 DIMM (Old Ram)
- 4GB (x2) HyperX FURY 1600 MHz DDR3 CL10 DIMM (New Ram)
Once I booted, my PC kept turning its self on and off constantly. I made sure all the ram was slotted in properly and it was, I switched the pair of sticks between channel A and B and it booted. (Maybe I did something wrong at this point? I was just moving stuff around and it seemed to work...)
I then got an American Megatrends screen that said overclocking failed. I had seen this before. The last time I just opened the BIOS, made no changes and exited out and all was fine. This time as I was going through the BIOS I noticed that my D-RAM Frequency was set to DDR3 - 2133 MHz and my RAM is 1600 MHz so I changed it and everything booted normally.
Now once or twice a day I will either get a blue screen or my whole PC will just freeze and I will need to shut it down. So far it has happened 4 times and all while playing games.
Should I have not changed my D-RAM frequency? Is it something else?
I appreciate any help!
