I just built a new system after a long time away from the hobby.
Intel core i5 3570k
18 gigs / 2x 8 gigs patriot Intel extreme masters ddr-3 1600mhz
intel 330 series 120 gig ssd
evga nvidia gtx660ti ftw signature 2
corsair tx750m power supplie
win 7 home premium
First boot up no go, got three beeps, codes for mother board said it was memory error, took out a stick of memory, got boot up.
installed win, during updates and downloading and installing drivers got read write error and BSD!
Took the memory out of my old system and installed it dose not seem to be any more problems. fingers crossed.
How ever there have been a few finicky moments, for instance after a windows update the system rebooted a number of times before entering win, I am not sure if this was function of the updates or an error.
Also the usb 3.0 ports on my mother board do not seem to work, the regular ones see my thumb drive but not the 3.0. I have installed Intel's usb 3.0 drivers from their website.
So here is were I am at, I need some way of testing my rig to see if there are any other problems like maybe with my hard drive or the mother board, and also I got to find out why my usb 3.0 ports do not seem to work.
Any help is appreciated. I am really down to a wire with this. I built this system in part to run revit 3d architecture and other architectural modeling programs for school.
