Hi i have a 3.2 gigahert ASUS P5P800, w/ ati radeon 9600 graphics card, 512 mb ram.

I have been having some problems lately with first of all, i am getting this error called cyclic redunancy check when some i try to install programs that have to extract files, and i googled it and it said that it might be a ram problem, I have also been getting an error when i play cs source that says that says some memory error. I figured that all this was bad ram.

I have also been having a problem with my computer freezing up at random times? It moslty freezes when i play games. I think that there is a problem with my case, first there is no airflow, and there is only one fan. I think the problem is overheating system. I look at the system temperature and it usually varies between 60 degrees celsisus and 80 degrees celsisus which is very hot, it susally freezes at 80 degrees C.

So i called up some guys i new and i got 3 blue led fans, a new gaming cpu fan, and a new power supply to power all of those fans 420 watt.


I am looking on replacing the case with one with more airflow and putting on the fans and new cpu fan, and power supply.

I also wanted to reaplce the ram with a gig of ram. I hope that all of this works but i was wanodering if any of u would know if it was hard to do this? Changing cases and reweirng eerything,

It shouldn't be hard at all. Just make sure the case is the same form factor as the motherboard (probably ATX). You seem to know what you're doing, so it should be a breeze.

It's prolly the ram. Is the processor Intel or Amd? That 50 C is still quite high if it's the idle temp.

Its a ram problem i would say, when i first got my PC all setup i had the same problem and it turned out i had one stick of memory in the wrong slow giving me the problems. I would suggest getting a new stick fo ram and testing it out.
