    Got the new cables and having the same issue. Since I don't have a 144hz monitor I'm not sure what's going on.

    Sorry man, work has been very busy the last week. So the machine seems to be working fine. Well Chrome works. Gaming is another issue. Now have to figure out the monitor issues. While at 144hz in PUBG the monitor will randomly flicker. It turns black then goes back to the game. It happens in...

    This is on the 2600? Or the 2600X? This is the other RAM I have for this build. I bought both Flare X and Ripjaws 5 in case the Ripjaws didn't work as some had reported.

    There were no 2600x in stock at the time. I've always been curious about overclocking but never have. I think the other RAM set that I bought was G.Skill 3000.

    Nephew build randomly freezing

    So I should just put both sticks of RAM in and run Aida64? Or one at at time? Thanks again for all the help. I agree that it was most likely the PSU. But just want to test the machines stability a little before giving it to my nephew.

    Ok. New power supply is in (Corsair RM 750X Gold). Others not in stock. I only have 1 stick of RAM installed and was able to play 10 games of Solitaire over approximately 10 minutes. Last night after 2 or 3-ish minutes the PC would freeze. I'm in the process of running the Windows Memory...

    I have Seasonic in my machine. But they are not sold locally anymore. The EVGA is available in store. Yes. The HDD was not plugged into the MoBo. Only the SSD. I've made that mistake in the past as well.

    Nephew build randomly freezing

    Probably going to get one of each tomorrow and start over. Plans are to swap PSU first. Hopefully this is the issue. If not then the MoBo gets replaced. Might grab a video card just in case. Overkill?
