Hello all, I recently put together this new build and it has been very frustrating from the first moment, not sure why.
After putting it all together, i attempted to install WinXP, which it did but upon starting for the first time it froze during the load of the desktop (hourglass froze). I restarted it and it ran fine, i assumed it was just a random bug...I started to load drivers and randomly it just restarted on its own. I tried again and it did the same things at different times. I reinstalled windows again with the latest Bios and the same sort of thing happened at various places and times (usually within 10min of boot).

I tried loading Vista thinking maybe it would react differently or that my XP disc was bad. Same thing happened. I have tried another power supply already thinking it was the problem, i have reseated the RAM and CPU and video card already. The only thing that possibly had some effect was adjusting the RAM timings manually. I have ram MemTest for 15 hours with no errors ?

Regardless though the system randomly restarts and or freezes and various times, not sure...more ram timing stuff ? ? ?

Specs:
MSI X58 PRO
2.6 Intel Core I7
4GB DDR3 Patriot Viper (PC3-10666 - 1333MHz)
Hitachi 1TB SATA HD
Evga Nvidia 260
OCZ 600W PSU

Advice, Thoughts Please ...

Hi amd cool welcome to the forum.
Well you could try just on stick of ram in first black slot nearest the cpu. See if yo get it stable it may also be a incompatability problem with ram make sure ram volt is no more than 1.65volts.
You could also try it out of the case see if its stable

Try dropping your RAM speed to 1066MHz and see if it helps.

Pull the PSU power cord, & clear CMOS, then test with just 1 mem. stick in the A0 slot, & with just 1 HDD installed.
