Question Ram and Mobo compatibility issues.


Apr 19, 2017
I recently finished building a new PC, however after installing windows, and the PC
seemingly running fine for 10 minutes, everything freezes.

I lose control over all open windows/ cant open new ones. The mouse and keyboard still work fine,
although task manager cant be opened anymore. Next mouse and keyboard freeze as well and I have to force shutdown the PC.

Interestingly enough; if I use the little reset button on my case,
the PC no longer boots past the initial screen where you can enter the BIOS setup (pressing DEL).
If i shut down and restart, the PC once again boots windows fine, until it freezes again ~10 minutes later.

I have reinstalled windows, made sure all software is up to date, and the issue persists.
Now Im thinking there might be defects/ compatibility issues with the hardware...
Im hoping you guys can assist me!
Edit: the RAM P/N is this one: F4-3000C16D-16GISB
