I have built a new pc.


AsRock 990fx Extreme6

Amd fx9590

DDr3 1600 16gb Ram

512gb Samsung 915 M.2 SSD

Msi R9 390x

Samsung bluray DVDwriter

Corsair HX12000 1200W Psu

win 10 pro 64 bit


So I have built this machine 3 weeks ago. (been building them for 20years) Originally had a Asrock 990fx performance 3.1 motherboard. had nothing but issues, kept get 'IRQL' and 'Bad_system_config' errors. Random shut downs, wouldn't wake up monitor from sleep, and sometimes had to unplug, hold power button in , then replug to get screen. Wouldn't install the 1511 windows 10 update.

So I replaced the motherboard to above one.

Windows installs fine, also updates (I'll come back to this though) and install all drivers etc from manufacturers website to latest ones. If I update the windows, the screen will freeze and play back and continuous buzz of the last note played(if in a game) and only way to get working is turn it off at the button. Tried with AV installed and uninstalled.

I turned off the update service and machine worked for 2 days, but woke up this morning to find it froze at 1.23am. there was nothing running.

Now I'm lost what the issue is, I dunno if it's a windows 10 and motherboard issue, or win 10 and gfx card/driver or faulty part..?

Any ideas or help?
