Windows 10 Pro (x64, Retail)
-- Fresh install, several weeks of use.
Sapphire R9 380 4GB
Rosewill 750W PSU
I got this CPU and Motherboard over Christmas. I didn't end up installing them until a recently, in February. I was afraid because my brother has this same CPU/Mobo combination and he experienced BSODs a few times and then freezing -- until eventually he freezes so often that he either hangs on the Windows bootup screen, or he freezes after getting to the desktop.
He tried reinstalling windows and it would freeze during the install process even (eventually he was able to get through the install process after several tries). He froze at the desktop when he tried installing Linux as well. He had to go back to his old computer because he can't even run windows now.
I am scared because it appears that my computer is beginning to take the same downward spiral as his. It started with a couple intermittent freezes and BSODs, and now he is totally locked up.
I am experiencing intermittent BSODs and freezes as well. I fear that I soon may not even be able to boot up!
