Crashes every once a while

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I'm running Mavericks on my AMD system, but for some reason every now and then the system completely locks up and I have to hard shutdown and boot back in.

I can't see a pattern yet, and I don't really know where to look for logs.


If someone could tell me where to find a log that may be useful that'd be great - or any other advice would be great, too.


I'm running the following setup:

Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X EVO

Graphics cards: ASUS NVidia GTX 560 TI (x2)

Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955 @ 3,2GHz

RAM: 14GB HyperX 1333MHz


Everything looks to be working out the box so far. LAN works out the box, graphics appear to also work out the box - but I'm wondering if the graphics could be the cause of the problem?

I have Facebook on in the background, and that sometimes uses Flash to play the videos in the newsfeed, so wondered whether it was stressing one/both of my graphics cards.


Any help is appreciated. Let me know if you need more information - as I say, I don't know where to find any logs just yet, but if someone could help with that I'll post it here (and look at it myself)

This forum seems pretty dead.


Anyway - I've found the freezefix.app which looks to be promising. Will post my results (and the app if it fixes my problem) later.
