ive ran all the performance and reliability tests in windows, and everything is fine so it says. idk what is to explain this sudden freeze tho.


im thinking i may have to reinstall. but i want that to be my last resort
Memtest will take about 4-5 hours, and it's only been an hour, don't skimp on the tests. You just did a major hardware change, so that is the most logical suspect.

No my AMD board. But the ram hasent changed at all. Same timings speed and voltage. I know its no the ram. I know its no hardware. I know its software wise. I guess it may have been too big of a change. What's weird tho is that I've done that 1000 times with my AMD rig. Swapping the same mobo.

Any other ideas? I'm thinking a reinstall is in order soon.....

So even though the reasons why swapping from AMD to intel using the same OS installation were pointed out - you are now wondering why you're getting niggly issues?

I recall starting with a fresh installation for this very reason.

I thought you replaced the mobo with the same model. If it's a different model mobo you really should do a fresh install.
