I dont think its a heat issue. My case has 4 fans and I clean inside with canned air regularly.

Thank you for your patience with my responses.

Try slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4

OK.. update.

I have contacted OCZ about my ram and they gave me the correct memory timings and settings. The problem still occurs.


I noticed when i have the resource monitor up during "hangs"
on the overview tab.
under the disk field

the highest active time stat goes to 100%

This syncs up with the hangs
