Can anyone help me with a problem?


Dec 30, 2010
Hey guys i feel like my PC is very quickly deteriorating.


CPU: Intel i7 3930K - Watercooled by a Corsair H100
MoBo: Asrock x79 extreme 9
RAM: 2(4*) x Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600Mhz 4Gb Sticks (* First one of these broke and then about two weeks another broke.)
Soundcard: Asrock Gameblaster (came with the MoBo)
PSU: the cheapest 600w one i could find on novatech.
CASE: NZXT Phantom
(Additional info: Dual monitors (one 1440x900 LCD the other 1024x768 CRT), I run my audio into an amp and then out to speakers.)

So here's the problem every now and then my PC will just freeze and ill have to restart it to fix it, this started a little after i got the power supply (my old one broke) and during two of these crash's my RAM stick broke rendering them completely useless and stopping my PC from turning on. does anyone know why this is happening?

Also from time to time when my PC turns or when i start a Skype call sometimes the soundcard just stops working and i cant send sound via mic or send sound to my speakers

andy help with this would be much appreciated

You also got the cheapest one you could find. Replace your power supply with a good power supply. Something made by Corsair,Sesonic,Antec,Enermax,XFX.
