@pastrychef

Seems there is no remedy for the freezing problem. It does not do it nearly as much as before but still like 2-4 times in 1 hour in Davinci Resolve :(. Is there anything left to try ?

Thanks a million,
PK

You currently have your CPU overclock and XMP disabled, correct? Are the temps in your case good? GPU temps? VRM temps?

Yup, no OC, temps about 60 on gpu, about same on cpu. Sometimes i don't do anything extensive on DR, just scrolling through timeline or playing back, and audio meters freeze, sound keeps playing and the umbrella keeps scrolling indefinately. Mouse moves but everything else is unresponsive.

Do you have different RAM to try?

Yup, i recently added 2x16 Hyper X rams, before that i use Corsair Vengeance RED LED 32GB 2666MHz. I can try with Vengeance rams as with Corsairs it froze just the same.

My guess is that this instability is related to CPU, RAM, or VRM. Once again, try disabling XMP (in both BIOS and config.plist). Make sure the VRM heatsinks are getting a bit of airflow.

XMP-s are disabled. Vents on GPU are standing still most of the time and barely moving when reaching about 50 C. All temps are about 30-40 most of the time, GPU will reach about 50 when rendering something. Yet it still freezes just by scrolling timeline or source clips, absolutely nothing that could stress the system. This is just mind-boggling...

PS. in config the disabling XMP is on clover on Boot section XMP Detection Yes or NO ? It is on "NO".

Yes, it is mind boggling... I don't know what else it can possibly be...
