Computer Freeze

You're not supposed to have both enabled at the same time unless the onboard card is used for the graphics and the added on card is used for GPU computing.
I'm not sure about that. How to check that setting? That can apply to my own PC too, since it has the same specs.
Getting the manual and having a look to find the BIOS setting for it.

Hmm... Looks like it's automatically disabled if you don't plug your monitor into it. My mistake, sorry :/ I thought it was like my NVidia motherboards which needs you to disable it from the BIOS.

Anyways tho, let us know how the motherboard change goes.

Can't say anything yet since it's only been a few hours.

Though one bad news is that a few games totally lost their audio. I'm still looking for solution on this.
EDIT: Solved

Now I'm logging the date for reference.

November 19: Motherboard replaced

I hope I've made the right decision.

Yeah, let's hope the motherboard swap fixed the freezing issue for good. Wink

Yeah, let's hope for the best. This has went on too long and we are running out of ideas.

Exactly. Not to mention it would be a shame to waste money for something when it turns out that it was caused by something else.

Btw, make sure you keep the old motherboard. In case it turns out to be not the motherboard, you can put a new CPU and RAM on the old one and it will be usable- it has a built in graphics card, so it will work without an external one.

Bad news. The mobo was not the culprit.

Oh well, I guess for now I will switch the gpu and see if the freeze will happen to me instead. That's the only thing I can think of now.

That stinks.

Well, as I said before, remove the GPU and try using the onboard one for a few days and see if it happens (although, I should note- the onboard GPU is nowhere as powerful as a GPU card, so expect accordingly. If your CPU is a Sandy Bridge Core i5, It should be an Intel HD Graphics 3000- the same type of video as my Mac Mini, which should be okay for Team Fortress 2 at 1280x720 and everything at low).

And well, I hope you heeded my advice about keeping the old motherboard, since now you know it isn't at fault, you can just build up a XBMC box from that.

PS: Intel motherboards work better with NVidia GPUs.

Yeah, the integrated GPU may not be a hotrod, but it should be fine for testing purposes. As for repurposing your old board, it's either that, or you can sell it for cheap and buy at least an Nvidia GT640.

Better idea: apologize to the Asus board for doubting it and put it back if you still have it, then sell the MSI and use the money to buy a NVidia GTS650Ti (non-Boost version. Boost version is for running SLI and a waste of money if your computer cannot support SLI). As I said before, the B75 is not really suited for gaming and is a little bit slower compared to the H77 because it's a business board (it works slightly slower to maintain system stability), and it lacks certain consumer oriented features.
