Windows 7: BSOD, Freeze, and Restart

31 Jul 2010   #41

Windows 7 Professional x64

OC usually means Over Clock. I will admit I don't really know why it would be listed on the box.

Thanks for the report, glad it seems to be over.

I don't know what this means but the majority of motherboards say something like 1333, 1600(OC), 1800(OC), etc. I'm guess the (OC) means there is a driver or setting in the bios that makes that RAM speed compatible as long as you know what to change. I only changed the ram speed from x6 to x8 in the bios making it 1600MHz.

Anyways I'm not to worried about the speed of the RAM, as I'm guessing it won't improve performance that much anyways, and I'm happy that my computer isn't crashing anymore. Thanks for the help guys :). Time to play some games!!! :)
That is good news! I hope your problems are over. Good work. :)

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Thanks :). Ya I meant (OC) might mean you can overclock but you need to overclock other settings or download certain drivers as well to make it compatible? or maybe it just means the motherboard will not automatically detect it and it needs to be overclocked? or maybe it means it has the option to overclock but it's normally not compatible or there could be issues? I'm not really sure how that works, just some motherboards have (OC) and some don't for 1600MHz, but I'm just glad it's working now. Anyways I'm going to delete the bookmark to this page now. Thanks again guys.
