Hi everyone!
i got a big issue since i bought my comp,

does anyone know what settings i can use to get my rig stable?
when i play games or sometimes in windows the whole thing just freezes up, i cant do anything exept turn on off button. the guy who built it doesnt know anything, when i bought my computer i said i wanted the best, He didn´t mention that this motherboard, the Striker 2 Extreem 790i Ultra SLI was a tweeking board, and in most cases need to be adjust manully!! Anyway!

This is that i have

Striker 2 Extreem 790iUltra SLI
Inter Quad q9550 2,83Ghz
8GB RAM Patriot DDR3 G-series pc3-12800 1600mhz
2xGtx 280 SLI
Windows 7 Pro

So, what ive tried to do in bios,
mem settings, as it says on the side of dimm 9-9-9-24 2t 1.8V
They are at sync mode 1333mhz
this settings seem most stable so far, but still lot of problems!
when i try to put them on 1600mhz the computer freezes after a while,
NB 1.42
SB 1.5
the rest is set to auto, don´t know what it is, but if someone knows something! please contact me asap!!
nothing is overclocked!
Please someone help me!! im loosing my mind here!
