I have an old computer with the X58 chipset that started randomly freezing and rebooting after I upgraded to Windows 10.
This is the component list:
- Gigabyte GA-X58-USB3 motherboard
- Core i7 950 with Akasa Nero 2 Air Cooler
- 24 GB of Kingston DDR3 1333
- 120 GB OCZ Agility 2
- 1 TB Samsung disk
- 600w OCZ PSU 80 PLUS (OCZ600SXS)
I tested all the possible variations of my components:
- removed the GTX 660 and tested with a GT 210 to check if it was the GPU
- stressed test with prime95 for 10h on Windows 10 and it passed all the tests, temps stable at 70/71º C, drawing 290w maximum from the wall (measured with a kill-a-watt)
- removed a 1tb 7200RPM disk without sucessess
Could the problem be the SSD? The smart test says it's ok, but since it's a very old drive that only supports SATA2, I was wondering if Windows 10 is somehow incompatible with it. Could that be the cause?
