PC Freezing While Rendering

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently made upgraded my monitor to an AGON 1440 Super Ultrawide 49" and upgraded my RAM from 32Gb Corsair 3000 kit to a HyperX 64Gb 3200 kit, and since then, more and more frequently my computer will freeze while beginning a render. The audio from any music or video continues for several minutes, and eventually stops. I thought it might have been a RAM issue, so I switched back to my Corsair Vengeance 32Gb 3000Mhz kit. It doesn't freeze as often or in the same way, but it has started to blue screen with a "DPC Watchdog Violation". I've switched back to the 64Gb HyperX kit for now. Any help would be appreciated! This has been happening for a few weeks now, I updated the BIOS, Drivers, Windows updates, and it is still happening.  Temperatures stay below 70 even under heavy load.


AMD Ryzen 9 3950x
ROG Strix X570-E (BIOS: 2606, 8/13/2020)
64Gb HyperX 3200 RAM
MSI Ventus Geforce 2070 Super (Driver version: 456.55 9/28/2020)


(I don't think it is OC'd but I don't know much/anything about that, other than adjusting the ram frequency and running the performance utility in the BIOS.

First of all, do not run the performance utility in bios, ever. It will attempt to OC your system and cause lot's of instability issues. I'd recommend resetting your BIOS by removing the CMOS battery on the motherboard for a couple of minutes, then press the power button a couple of times to discharge the board. After you have reinstalled the CMOS battery, boot into BIOS and set XMP profile 1 and make sure no optimization stuff is running, then save and reboot into windows.

try running memtest86, see if your RAM is stable at that frequency

if there are error, you can keep XMP on, but turn freq down to 3000, see how it goes

 

64GB is quad rank, unless you're using 16GB per rank dimms, then it's dual rank

still straining on your IMC, though

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Is XMP the AI Overclock Tuner menu? I hear about XMP all the time but I always thought it was only for specific motherboards.

What is IMP, and what's straining it? I'm pretty new to the enthusiast crowd. Yes, I'm running 16Gb in 4 dimms.

IMC is integrated memory controller

it's what's talking to your RAM, basically

 

adding more rank to the channel puts more strain on it, so the capability of driving higher frequency drops as you increase the ranks

i recommend you do a bios reset to reset whatever changes you made, then enter bios again

then look towards middle left, you'll see DOCP/XMP, select profile 1 and try

if it doesnt work, go into bios again and select 3000MHz instead of 3200/Auto

Alright, so I've tried the above, running the bios at default settings except I changed the ram frequency to 3000 instead of auto (still 200 under the suggested speed). Unfortunately it still crashed the first time I tried to render. Any other ideas? Maybe it has something to do with my new monitor?
