My main system is crashing with not alot in common. Each time, it's under a stress load of a full RAM check or in Audiosurf 2. I can't tell if the kernel get frozen, or the display crashes. I can't tell if it's from a weak CPU-RAM trace that gets damaged from heat or the GPU is doing something. The crashes are becoming for frequent.
In game, total system freeze. Not even holding the power button turns off the system. Usually.
In memcheck 5.04 it just freezes with all the CPUs appearing locked, but the heartbeat in the top left is still going.
My hardware is as follows: Xeon E5 2620 v3 4x Kingston 2133 (clocked at 1866) DDR4 registered ECC memory Samsung 840 Evo 250GB formatted at ext4 2x Western Digital 4TB drives formatted in BTRFS RAID 1 Asus R9 270x 4GB Asrock extreme4/3.1 x99
Test the system out with 1 stick or ram using each stick 1 at a time if it crashes with each stick its not the ram.
I doubt its the ram but this is a hardware issue. Since holding down the power button is separate from the O.S. Your psu most likely is dieing which you should replace fast before it kills your whole system.
