    A couple of small issue's with my R4E setup

    Ok I have had my nice new setup for a couple of weeks now.

    And I have played around with it a bit, but I seem to be having a few issue's with it.

    Basicly I can get it running 4.5, 4.7, 4.75 or even 4.8ghz with no probs.

    It will post, boot in to windows and run fine.

    I can usually get Intel Burn test to complete on 10 pass's using 12 threads, although temps do hit 84° on the higher clock speeds.

    However in normal use the temps don't go above 70°c

    The issue's I have are:

    1) with any of the above settings, the system is stable, for around 48 hours and then it will just hang, no warning, no bsod just lockup and stay like that (left it on over night the other day, got up and found it had been frozen for around 6.5 hours).

    If I reboot it can be find for another 48 hours or so, and then do the same again, doesn't seem to matter if it's 4.5ghz or 4.8ghz it still does it.

    2) My ssd is a vertex 3 120gb, but in device manager it shows up as a scsi drive (as do all my drives both hdd and optical, be it sata 2 or 3), unless I use the asmedia ports.

    3) If I enable the asmedia ports, the system seems to "freeze" for upto a couple of mins, whenever the hdd is being used (windows updates, installing an application, etc etc) and then carries on as if nothing happened (so doesn't crash or bsod either).

    Other than that, it all seems good, but for the time being I have had to leave it on the stock 3.2ghz / 3.8ghz turbo just to make sure it is 100% stable even as standard.

    So I am wondering, does anyone know how to fix the above issue's I am having ?

    My system spec is:

    Asus R4E mobo (1201 bios, also tried 1103 and 1101)
    Intel core i7 3930k cpu (max of 1.37v in bios and 1.41v max in cpu-z)
    16gb Corsair Vencence 1600mhz ram (not over clocked this except with 4750mhz due to 125 blck taking it to 1666mhz), using xmp profile to keep safe voltage.
    Ocz Vertex 3 120gb sata 3 ssd (windows drive)
    Hitachi 3tb sata 3 7200rpm hdd (storage)
    2x sata 2 optical drives
    Gigabyte SOC GTX 560ti
    Corsair H100 watercooler with 4 fans in push / pull config

    That is the first time I have seen that happen. Could you look at the event log and see what happened just before your system froze each time. Did the system try to recover from a sleep state? Or what....
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    I have found that running my strap at 125 resulted in random instabilities. Not sure that is your issue. It appears your issue occurs at 100 as well.

    Do the hangs always occur at idle? Has it hardlocked during gaming or other load states?

    I can't find anything for the random lockup's (such as the 6.5 hour freeze).

    However there are alot of errors coming up as iaStorA, Reset to device, \Device\RaidPort0, was issued.

    Which is strange as I don't use raid, it's ACHI in the bios.

    It happens pretty much the same at 100 as 125, I am not much of a gamer tbh (altho I am looking to use the pc more for gaming, hence going for this board), it's mainly doing it when windows is doing updates (accessing the hdd / ssd) or installing other software / applications. It is possible that the 6.5hour crash was done during a virus scan (using kaspersky) but it isn't related to waking up a hdd.

    I have similar issues when I try to overclock above 4.5 GHZ, however, I have not tried bios 1201, didn't bother because I do not have an AMD 7900 series card on this system.

    Good to hear i'm not the only one

    I don't think it's anything serious, and I am not 100% sure it's linked to the OC itself.

    I have a suspician it's all linked to whatever is causing the ACHI sata drives to be picked up and listed as Scsi, and then maybe the overclock is causing some instability from that.

    Looking more and more into my event logs, I have alot of Warnings for iaStorA and also some criticals for mobilink.

    it is best to disable all background software for the time being to monitor if its some S/w issue

    mobilink is the only software that is listed, and that is asus.

    I can't find a way to uninstal it though as it doesn't show up in the remove programs list.
